May 2009 Book Club Selection
The Seven Silly Eaters
By Mary Ann Hoberman
Print/braille edition, $7.00
Ages 4-8

A pitch-perfect book about a family of fussy eaters and the beleaguered
mom who tries to please - with an ending that is both hilarious and

       When Peter was just one year old
       He did not like his milk served cold
       He did not like his milk served hot
       He liked it warm...
       And he would not
       Drink it if he was not sure
       It was the proper temperature.

"We have bookshelves full of great children's books and THIS book is one
of our top 5 picks EVER! My 4-1/2 year old loves the characters and
following each one through from page to page as they grow, keeping track
of their silly antics. My 2 year old son likes the sound of the words...
I love this book for the descriptive and fun-to-read verse, and also for
the way it makes the hecticness of having small children in the house
seem so normal! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!"
-Amazon customer review

"This highly comic rhyming romp that surprisingly (and nicely) twists
into a birthday story tweaks fussy eaters with style and panache."
- School Library Journal

"Hoberman's riotous tale is spun like a Seussian fable and told, as the
Doctor would have told it, in an up-tempo, whimsical rhyme. The
preposterous premise sets the comedy in motion, and your suspension of
disbelief goes into action..."
- The New York Times Book Review
