what tha......?It's a floor wax! No, it's a dessert topping!
Hee-hee-heeI thought it should be a vampy girl pirate on the cover...Fuselet, a little off topic, but can you direct me to picture book titles of stories describing fussy eating? I thought of Jane Yolan's dinosaur book, Russell Hoban's Bread and Jam for Frances...can you name any others?KT
Not Fuse 8, but what about "The Seven Silly Eaters" by Mary Ann Hoberman and "I Will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato" by Lauren Child, and "Gregory the Terrible Eater" by Mitchell Sharmat, which I think was a Reading Rainbow book. Of the three, the first is my kids' favorite, and I'm inclined to agree; it's the only one that we actually own. I'm sure Robert Munsch has covered the subject, but...
Fussy eating? Well, there's always Lauren Child's, "I Will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato". I'm a big fan of that one. And there's one that involves an old hippie rabbit who never eats his carrots. The name escapes me. I'll ponder the problem.
There's also a book near and dear to my heart: Gregory the Terrible Eater (Sharmat/Aruego). That Gregory is NOT your average goat.
That title is excellent, Fuse! I want it!
And it'll be arriving just in time for Halloween. Can't wait!
[smugmode="on"]We Brits have already read it. We read it ages ago.[smugmode="off"]Sadly, it wasn't very good.
Well OF COURSE it wasn't very good. It's name is "Vampirates". If it had any redeeming qualities beyond the title I should be very surprised indeed. That won't stop the kids (and their librarians) from reading it though. So how bad is it exactly? Can you give me a "worst moment" example? Are there vampirate songs? Yo ho ho and a bottle of blood type stuff?
Brilliant concept! How'd I miss that one?
If it had any redeeming qualities beyond the title I should be very surprised indeed.Ha! Oh, it’s not bad exactly, but you’d be surprised how dull a pirate/vampire fusion can be. Or perhaps you wouldn't.I picked it up, as I'm sure everyone will, entirely because of the (solid gold) title. I remember being disappointed almost immediately when I turned it over and read (something like) "The year is 2565".Your idea for a shanty, by the way, was remarkably prescient...
