Apt not to be satiated with one serving of this appetizing fare, youngsters will never—not ever—pass up a second helping.
The illustrations . . . are wildly patterned mixed-media collages, including vegetable photographs, and very funny indeed.

. . . [E]ven younger readers who find Lola’s stance perfectly reasonable will join her in this engagingly playful head game.
This funny, endearing look at how children’s tastes can be based more on preconception than taste buds is sure to infuse levity into the daily dinner-table struggle. The author’s dedication? ‘With love from Lauren/who is keen on Marmite/but would rather not eat a raisin.’
The illustrations are done in a funky, mixed-media style with photographs, bits of wallpaper and fabric and sketchy drawings…regrettably, though my kids loved the book, they did not fall for Charlie’s methods when I tried them.
The illustrations resemble a child’s cut-and-paste collage and the text often dances across the pages in a variety of fonts. Even finicky youngsters will enjoy this tasty treat.
