Description

"Youngsters will never -- not ever -- pass up a second helping." -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY Lola is a fussy eater. A very fussy eater. She won't eat her carrots (until her brother Charlie reveals that they're orange twiglets from Jupiter). She won't eat her mashed potatoes (until Charlie explains that they're cloud fluff from the pointiest peak of Mount Fuji). There are many things Lola won't eat, including - and especially - tomatoes. Or will she? Two endearing siblings star in a witty story about the triumph of imagination over proclivity.

Review quote

Apt not to be satiated with one serving of this appetizing fare, youngsters will never--not ever--pass up a second helping.
--Publishers Weekly The illustrations . . . are wildly patterned mixed-media collages, including vegetable photographs, and very funny indeed.
--New York Times Book Review, The . . . [E]ven younger readers who find Lola's stance perfectly reasonable will join her in this engagingly playful head game.
--Kirkus Reviews This funny, endearing look at how children's tastes can be based more on preconception than taste buds is sure to infuse levity into the daily dinner-table struggle. The author's dedication? 'With love from Lauren/who is keen on Marmite/but would rather not eat a raisin.'
--Amazon.com The illustrations are done in a funky, mixed-media style with photographs, bits of wallpaper and fabric and sketchy drawings...regrettably, though my kids loved the book, they did not fall for Charlie's methods when I tried them.
--Miami Herald The illustrations resemble a child's cut-and-paste collage and the text often dances across the pages in a variety of fonts. Even finicky youngsters will enjoy this tasty treat.
--School Library Journal
