I Don't Like Cheese by Hannah Chandler


I Don't Like Cheese by Hannah Chandler

Mike the mouse isn't like other mice. He just won't eat cheese. Fortunately, Ashley, the little human girl who lives in the house, feeds him lots of tasty treats: like pizza and tacos. But, hold on, don't those have cheese in them? This delightful picture book explores how even the fussiest eaters can be tempted to try new flavours. And, if you're anything like Mike, you might find you develop quite a taste for international cuisine along the way! Written by Hannah Chandler when she was just 11 years old, I Don't Like Cheese is hopefully the first of several adventures featuring Mike; now 12, Hannah is already planning the sequel.


I Don't Like Cheese is a good book for kids that don't like trying new foods. The simple watercolor illustrations are fun to look at and fit well with the writing. I read this book to my kids several times and they really liked talking about the different foods that Mike eats. It was also fun for them to learn which countries the foods they love come from. On a side note, the author was eleven years old when she wrote this! How amazing is that? - BatchofBooks.com
