Synopsis

Everyone Loves Bacon by Kelly DiPucchio

Sure, everyone loves Bacon-until Bacon's popularity goes right to his head. He's so busy soaking up the attention from his fans, that he soon forgets the important things in life, like friendship and family. How will things end for our deliciously crispy hero?

Reviews

Retro art meets wry humor in this very funny tale of hubris set in a diner. Throughout, Wight's expressive illustrations meet DiPucchio's text at every humorous turn as they define the foodstuffs-er, characters with cartoonish panache. A bacon book so funny that perhaps even some vegetarians will love it. --Kirkus Reviews, starred review DiPucchio and Wight...tell a comically cautionary story that's worthy of Behind the Music. DiPucchio's short, direct text provides just the right setup for Wight's boisterous, spoofy drawings and egomaniacal star. His bright-eyed anthropomorphism and visual nudges should remind many readers of Veggie Tales at its most supremely silly. --Publishers Weekly This story follows the current craze for bacon and imagines Bacon, the character, as a type of matinee idol. Everything has a bright, mid-century, nostalgic look. The various food characters are distinct identities, which are brought to life through the illustrations. Kids will appreciate the clever tone. Many...will want this Bacon on the menu. --School Library Journal Retro art meets wry humor in this very funny tale of hubris set in a diner.
