From Booklist:

Ages 3-8. Whether the food is delicious or gross, eating is a sensual experience and a social one. Westcott has chosen 60 poems about the joy and mess of mealtimes, and her wild cartoon illustrations in very bright acrylic colors express the general uproar, especially when animal appetite collides with decorous table manners. There are poems about eating silly things (including eels and "A sliver of liver"), about eating foods we like (including "oodles of noodles"), about eating too much ("I know an old lady who swallowed a cow"), and about manners and the lack thereof ("My mother says I'm sickening"). Prelutsky, Kennedy, Heide, McCord, and other popular children's poets are well represented; so are Ogden Nash and other masters of nonsense; and there are lots of limericks and folk verses, rhymes and puns. The illustration for "School Lunch" may be the best of all, dramatizing the anguish of Hoberman's protagonist: "Each time I bring it / I wish I had bought it / But each time I buy it / I wish I had brought it." Nonsense verse like this is a great way to show kids that words are full of laughter and song. Hazel Rochman
