It's Disgusting--And We Ate It!

It's Disgusting--And We Ate It!

by James Solheim, James E. Solheim Illustrated by Eric Brace
How about a nice dish of Colonial Squirrel Pie with a side of milkweed shoots? If that doesn't grab you, you might think about trying some Garbage Stew, just like they made in medieval England. But if you're feeling a little tired and need a boost, your best bet is roasted spiders. They've got three times the protein of cooked beef. (Is your mouth watering yet?) Illustrated by the wildly-creative Eric Brace, "It's Disgusting -- and We Ate It!" is a fascinating look at culinary creations from all over the world!
