D.W. The Picky Eater

Marc Brown
Authors:
Marc Brown

There's a whole slew of edibles that D.W. finds disgusting, but spinach is at the top of her list. Dining out with her family, she causes a scene when her parents suggest that she give her salad greens a try - no more restaurants for the picky little aardvark after that. Staying home with a sitter is boring, though, so when she hears about her grandmother's birthday dinner at a fancy restaurant, she wants to come, too. She orders the Little Bo Peep Pot Pie, devours it with relish, amazing everybody, including herself, and learns a lesson. The text is spare and funny, and while all the coloured-pencil illustrations reflect Brown's sense of humour and familiarity with the little details of childhood, some are downright hilarious. Charming endpapers feature some of the foods D.W. loves to hate. Although she wears an expression of pure horror when she discovers the main ingredient of her pie, readers will suspect that she'll keep that delicious spinach down and her mind and mouth open to new eating possibilities in the future.
