James is a very picky eater. His dad has to get creative — very creative — in order to get James to eat foods he thinks he doesn’t like. He presents James with a series of outlandish scenarios packed with fanciful and gross kid-friendly details— like pre-chewed gum as an alternative to broccoli, and lumpy oatmeal that grows so big it eats the dog — in an effort to get James to eat. But it is eventually James himself who discovers that some foods are not so bad, after all, if you’re willing to give them a try.
This irreverently hilarious early reader, illustrated in full color, explores a universal point of contention between parent and child in a playful, satisfying way.
