Seven fussy eaters find a way to surprise their mother

Publishers Description
Peter wants only milk, Lucy won't settle for anything but homemade lemonade, and Jack is stuck on applesauce. Each new addition to the household brings a new demand for a special meal.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Silly fun which is a joy to read!  May 24, 2008
Typically, I am not in favor of books that show bad role models but the kids in this book are SILLY eaters and most of them are eating healthy foods, just not in a healthy way. (Can you imagine living ONLY on milk or applesauce? THAT'S SILLY-- kids will understand that!) What makes this a GREAT book is the language (the poetry is SO fun to read aloud) and the illustrations which show the toll this kind of "silly eating" has on the huge and quickly growing Peters family. I love Frazee's drawings of family life showing all of the clutter and mess generated by the large family. If nothing else, it will make you feel better if you have laundry that needs folding and dishes piled up next to the sink as you take some time out and read to your kids!
My kids can't get enough of this book!  Apr 21, 2008
This is a great book, wonderful pictures that help to teach and tell the story. My kids love it. It's well written and fun to read. It captivates a large age span. Yes the family does end up eating cake, but you can teach about picky eating from what is happening to the mother in the pictures. This book has helped with and led to many good converstaions about healthy eating attitudes with my children (ages 7,5,&3). I love this book!
The Seven Silly Eaters  Feb 5, 2008
My daughter and I love this rhyming book. We bought an extra copy for her friend's birthday. It is my favorite book to read to her. I bought it when she was 4. She still loves it at 7.
a complete delight  Nov 30, 2007
What a book! Where to start explaining why I adore it? A frazzled mother, picky (but not obnoxious) children, a house overflowing with messes and love. Beautifully written with none of the dreary, predictable rhymes found in too many children's books. A storyline of a mother coping as well as she can for as long as she can, finally blowing her cool, and her maturing children stepping up to accept new responsibilities. Ahhh.

Without Marla Frazee's illustrations, the book would still be good, but the illustrations are even more wonderful than the words. The mom is persistent, hardworking, loving. She has a Zen-like serenity, MOST of the time. I love that she's taller than the dad, and that she wears Converse All-Stars, and that her hair falls into her face sometimes. The dad is cool, too, even though he isn't a significant part of the text. I love that the trees grow, the cats have kittens, the apple and lemon trees bear fruit. I love that the family is able to get it together so that the mom gets time to play her cello again. She has earned it, that's for sure.

This book is a treasure. Buy it, savor it with your kids. And the next time you are faced with "I'm bored!", enlist your children's help in baking Mrs. Peters' Birthday Cake. There's no recipe, but start with oatmeal, applesauce, milk, eggs, etc... you may need to add a bit of baking powder, and some sugar. Just wing it. Even if it doesn't turn out "pink and plump and perfect," you will have done something pretty cool with your kids. With luck, they will even help in cleaning it up afterward.

Our favorite book!  Nov 6, 2007
This book has brilliant illustrations and my children love the cadence of the rhyming in the book. It is a very clever story - and the theme of picky eaters is one that resonates with every Mom I know. We have brought it to school to read to the classes and have given it as gifts to many friends. It's our favorite book. Highly recommended!
