Can I Eat That?

(1 reviews with an average rating of 4 out of 5)

Publisher: Phaidon Press

A quirky combination of fact and fun, this distinctive picture book about food poses bizarre yet logical questions that inquisitive children typically ask: 'If I eat jelly and I eat fish, can I eat jellyfish?' (surprisingly, the answer is yes!); 'Do fish have fingers?';and 'If there is ketchup, is there ketchdown?'

Readers will discover that, although you can't eat a tornado as it is made from wind, you can eat tonnato from Italy, tournedos from France and tostada from Mexico.

Written by a restaurant critic and illustrated by a food artist, this wonderfully stylish, funny and informative book will whet the appetites of young gastronomes and fussy eaters alike. The crisp, brightly coloured illustrations are enticing and perfectly complement the witty playful text, which is great to read aloud. Ideal to encourage children to explore unfamiliar foods from around the world.
