One of our Books of the Year 2015 - A Reader Review Panel Pick of the Year 2015 - Julia Eccleshare's Debut of the Month, August 2015 A laugh-out-loud story told in a bouncing, rhyming text about the very unexpected things that can happen while you are sleeping…There are rapping lemons, partying pears, wriggling apples, grapes doing the conga and a very cool pineapple. And they are all dancing to the disco beat. Whoever would have thought that the fruit bowl would come alive in the dead of night? Or that they could have so much fun! ~ Julia Eccleshare

  • Ruby Laverty, Age 5, and her Granny - 'We loved this book. Ruby thought the pictures of the fruit and their antics were hilarious - particularly the coconut diving into the washing up to have a bubble bath and make the others laugh.'
  • Rob, Age 5, and Mum - 'A colourful, rhyming picture book with a brilliant, quirky humour.'
  • Robyn, Age 6, Sabrina, Age 3, and Mum Tracey - 'It's a fun book to read aloud and I'm sure we'll be re-reading it many times.'  
  • Eleanor, Age 3, and Mum Tanya - 'This book is by far our favorite book we've received from Lovereading. It's such a fun book and we're currently reading it at least six times a day.'
  • Huxley Gleb, Age 4, and Mum - 'A great fun book full of colourful pictures and funny characters. Easy to follow story. The pictures bring the story to life. Good for a boy or a girl.'
  • Vinnie Johnson, Age 3 (and a half), and Mum - 'A very funny book about all the food in the kitchen having a lot of fun and a fruit disco. It was very fun and original... great illustrations and very catchy.'
  • Sam, Age 5, Jack, Age 3, and Mum Emma - 'Sam loved the DJ banana who he thought was 'really cool' and Jack liked the 'naughty lemons because they are cheeky’. We all loved the bright colours and fun rhymes, and had great fun wriggling our hips and shaking our pips!'
  • Emily, age 4 - 'A fun, exciting book about fruit that comes to life and parties after dark!'
  • Victoria Emerson & James McNichol, age 5 - 'Brilliant.'

Synopsis

Kitchen Disco by Clare Foges

Kitchen Disco is a zany and hilarious rhyming picture book for young children, featuring a stunning holographic foil spread in the middle of the book.

At night when you are sleeping

There's a party in your house,

It's a pumping, jumping, funky bash

When all the lights go out...

When the sun goes down, the Kitchen Disco starts up - and all the fruit in the fruit bowl come out to play. There are lemons who break-dance, tangerines who twirl and some very over-excited apples.
