Pizza, Pickles, and Apple Pie

“A broader perspective for readers who think no further than cupboards and fridges when asked where their food comes from….tasty.” —Kirkus Reviews

PIZZA, PICKLES, AND APPLE PIE is a breezy, brief, illustrated history of many of today’s popular foods. Told in comic format, this engrossing piece of nonfiction for middle graders… (is) the sort of fun, catch-your-eye, nonfiction book that a kid can pick up, thumb through, and read a section. (The book) will readily lend itself to multicultural food discussions, related classroom cooking projects, and food-sharing activities. Young readers will enjoy the cartoonish digital illustrations featuring tons of food, multicultural characters, and a cartoonish Thomas Jefferson chowing down on his beloved waffles. Try it! It’s good for you!” —Richie Partington, Richie’s Picks

“This history of food favorites is both informative and entertaining. Over the course of a few pages per food kids learn how certain foods were developed and evolved over the decades (or centuries)…Wonderful, detailed graphic novel style illustrations show the amazing varieties of food both throughout history and around the world.” —Youth Services Book Review
