A pretty fun children s book about two girls with highly active imaginations who one up each other describing the worst breakfast imaginable The artwork is interesting and unusual, but can be a bit difficult to make out in some places I picked this up from the library as I am a Mi ville fan and completionist I d be interested to see what children s reactions to this book would be.

That was a lot of strange words And some of them I didn t know Actually, some of those I still don t know In summary, it s a good idea for a children s book, with a simple take away message, which is not spelled out and chewed, and a bunch of interesting words to learn, which kids probably will not see in a book anytime soon But there are two big buts The illustrations are terrible And it s not just me, my son didn t like them as well, and the average rating of 3.1 indicates that a lot of other people share our opinion A bunch of words without any context, other than probably being food items, will stay just a bunch of words and won t make their way into vocabulary So 3 stars seems like a fair rating. I picked this up for one of the reasons many adults might pick up a picture book, because I recognized the author as world famous And Neil Gaiman does everything, so why not China Mi ville I think the idea of listing disgusting food page after page has potential, but this wasn t all that funny, it went on too long, and I thought the art from Zak Smith was rather confusing, but especially for children, though interesting enough for me to check out his book, Pictures Showing What Happens on Each Page of Thomas Pynchon s Novel Gravity s Rainbow. 3.5 stars I read this to my 10 and 6 year old boys at bedtime We all liked it just fine The art is unusual when I asked the kids about the book s pros and cons, the art ended up being on both lists It s unique, which is cool, but it s also weird, hard to make out at times, and a bit distracting The story of the book is funny and gross, which is a plus for kids The book is written in sometimes rhyme not sure if there s a real term for this some things rhymed, and some didn t I m a huge fan of a well done book in rhyme, so I found this a bit distracting I found myself let down every time I hit a non rhyme I enjoyed the nod to both British and American terminology fish sticks vs fish fingers, to may to to mah to It s a cute subject that most kids will definitely enjoy I would say check this out of the library before deciding to buy it for your permanent collection.Thank you to the publisher for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
