Reviews

Quirky imagination and wry humour make this a wonderful book * Time Out * A fun look at fussy eating * Mother and baby.co.uk * [Child] brings an eclecticism and freshness to her work that appeals directly to children * Financial Times * Only Lauren Child could come up with an idea as successfully wacky as this -- Nicholas Tucker * The Independent * Teatime will never be the same again after this glorious book by the Smarties Prize-winning author * Daily Mail * Brilliant design and a delight to share * Guide to Literary Resources * A brilliantly designed book from cover, typography and illustration to endpapers and will amuse all those fussy eaters out there * Literacy & Learning * A fresh and very funny picture book * Bookseller * Your offspring will be drawn in by the off-the-wall visuals that mix line drawings and patterns with photographs, creating a world that is absolutely grounded in reality yet also wildly imaginative * The Guardian * A wonderful corrective for picky eaters * The Sunday Times * Brilliant design and a delight to share * NLA Guide to Literary Resources * One of my favourite books for children...The story is compelling and the pictures enchanting, but the typography is not what you would expect. The letters vary in shape and size, some lines are straight and others meander across the page. Young children love this

those who can, love the variation and delight at being able to cope with it. -- Sue Walker * Books For Keeps * A paean to the early resistance years that are toddlerdom * The Guardian * A mischievous wit and cunning simplicity which, although it may have baffled some traditionalists, is still instantly embraced and understood by children * Books For Keeps * A fun look at the problem of fussy eating * motherandbaby.co.uk * A superb book to make you laugh out loud * Bookseller * So good, it's exhilarating * Independent * Brilliant * Sunday Telegraph *

About the Author

Lauren Child

The Children's Laureate

Lauren Child burst on to the children’s books scene in 1999 and has since published many bestselling and awardwinning books, including those featuring the hugely popular Charlie and Lola, and the Clarice Bean series. She has won numerous awards including the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal and the Smarties Gold Award. Her books have been made into an award-winning TV series and have sold in many languages with runaway success.

In December 2008 she was named as a UNESCO Artist for Peace, and was awarded an MBE in 2009.

Lauren Child is the 10th Waterstones Children's Laureate. Of the role she said, “I want to inspire children to believe in their own creative potential, to make their own stories and drawings and ignite in them the delight of reading for pleasure. In an increasingly fast paced world, children need the freedom to dream and imagine; to enjoy reading, drawing and telling their own stories without value judgement or restraint”.

The role of Children's Laureate is awarded every two years to an author or illustrator of children’s books to “celebrate outstanding achievement in their field and recognise the important contribution children’s literature makes to cultural life”. Child’s tenure will run until June 2019, which will mark 20 years since the post was inaurgurated by Quentin Blake and since Child published her first book.

Child revealed that that Blake was a huge inspiration to her. “When I was little, it never occurred to me to think of authors and illustrators as actual human beings," she said. "Then I saw Quentin on television live drawing on “Jackanory”, so he became a real-life illustrator to me and that made it something it was possible to become.”

Other previous post-holders include Anne Fine, Michael Morpurgo, Michael Rosen and Malorie Blackman.
