View all copies of this ISBN edition:

When young children are diagnosed with celiac disease, they often feel different and isolated from their peers. It can be especially difficult during birthday parties and class celebrations when everyone else is feasting on the cake and pizza that they can't have. No Wheat, Barley, Rye or Oats is a beautifully illustrated book for children that depicts, through a Revolutionary War analogy, a fictional "gluten-free" town fighting gluten-eating colonists for their "gluten freedom." There are characters like "Buckwheat Franklin," "Tofu Jefferson," and the inevitable "King Gluten." Taxes are passed on gluten-free bread, tea, and even gluten-free stamps. The story explores the townspeople's quest for independence and individuality and ends with a happily-ever-after wedding that brings everyone together in gluten-free peace. Endorsed by leading experts in celiac disease, including Peter H. R. Green, M.D., Amy R. DeFelice, M.D. and Suzanne Simpson, R.D., this whimsical tale raises awareness of celiac disease while helping newly diagnosed kids feel good about themselves as they adjust to a gluten-free diet. Proceeds from sale of the book will be donated to the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia Medical Center. Visit for more information.

“No Wheat, Barley, Rye or Oats-A Tale of One Town’s Quest for Gluten Freedom is a whimsical tale that all children, both Non-Gluten Eaters and Gluten-Eaters alike, should love. It not only teaches about celiac disease but also includes fun facts about American history. I am amazed that both the author and illustrator are 17-year-old high school students! Kudos to them both. A must read for all ages!”
--Amy R. DeFelice, M.D., Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University

“Filled to the brim with hilarious puns, great characters, and historical background, Taylor’s book wittily intertwines history and celiac disease, making for a humorous, engaging, and informational story for all ages.”
-Peter H. R. Green, M.D., Director, Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University

“This book humorously spotlights the dietary challenges faced by children with celiac disease and gluten intolerance. Lighthearted and reassuring, it serves as an important resource for families with children making the transition to a gluten-free diet.”
--Suzanne Simpson, R.D., Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University
