In this deliciously clever follow-up to Butterflies in My Stomach and Reach for the Stars, our young hero and his loyal dog, Roger, tackle another major aspect of life: eating. Mealtime should be a piece of cake, but this finicky eater eats like a bird. And that drives his mom bananas because he really should have three square meals a day. What will happen when he dines at the home of a friend whose mom is a real health nut? Maybe he'll discover that variety is the spice of life!
Children might find these sayings puzzling at first. But Bloch's witty and wonderful images, which mix whimsical line drawings with photographs of inanimate objects, make everything clear-and will leave readers of all ages pleased as punch.

SUMMARY: A young boy discusses food and mealtimes using idioms such as "use your noodle" and "all the tea in China"

ILLUSTRATIONS: The illustrations were created using drawings and photographs.

REVIEW: I love books that teach children about idioms, especially since I have a child on the autism spectrum. This book has plenty of humor to help children enjoy the learning process even more. The illustrations are simple and the use of real food photographs adds interest. This book could easily be used in the classroom all the way up to 5th grade to teach idioms.

AGE RECOMMENDATION: Ages 4-8, but any age for those on the autism spectrum
