9780983661559: A Moose Boosh: A Few Choice Words About Food

Where there is food, there will be laughter (and crumbs).
In more than 40 exuberant poems and "vandalized" photographs, you’ll meet a city kid who fantasizes about farming on a stoop, a girl with crumpets and crêpes in her head, and a boy with a pet cabbage. "Doctor Food" prescribes good food as medicine and "Dancing Kitchen" will have you shimmying with your skillet. From the amuse-bouche to the very last pea on the plate, A Moose Boosh celebrates food growing it, making it, slurping it and especially sharing it with loved ones at the dinner table. Bon appétit!
Poetry is food for the soul, food is poetry for the tongue.

Food writer Michael Pollan calls A Moose Boosh a "very funny book" while Kirkus Reviews says it is "a kid-friendly companion to Michael Pollan's Food Rules." The American Library Association named the book a 2015 Notable Children's Book and says "Readers and eaters are taken on a comical romp through the world of food using poetry and a visual feast of photographs enhanced with playful doodles."

Eric-Shabazz Larkin made his author/illustrator debut with A Moose Boosh. He made his picture book illustration debut with Farmer Will Allen and the Growing Table.

About the Author:

Eric-Shabazz Larkin didn't discover he had a graffiti artist inside of him until he drew the city skyline on the wall of his childhood home in Virginia. He made his picture-book illustration debut with Farmer Will Allen and the Growing Table, an American Library Association Notable Book. A Moose Boosh marks his author-illustrator debut. He lives in New York City.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

A Moose Boosh
So I said, "Sorry, sir, I did not order this...
this most peculiar dish."

"No," the waiter said. "It's an amuse-bouche,
compliments of the chef."

"Ah, well, that's very nice. So what's the compliment?"

"No, there is no compliment, just this tiny little dish."

"But I told you already that I did not order this."

"No, what I'm trying to say is that this is the chef's gift."

"Oh, I understand. My apology.
I just have one more question.
I don't mean to push,
but did you call this a Moose Boosh?"

"No, sir, it's a French word, a bit abstruse.
It's an mouse-bouche. And tasty, too."
A Desk Is Not A Dinner Table
You can eat dinner
at a round table
or a square table.
An oblong table
or a pear-shaped table.

But a desk,
is not a dinner table.

You can eat dinner at the beach
or eat it on a boat.
Eat with a bikini
or eat in a coat.
Eat upstairs.
Eat outside.
Eat feeling fat
or feeling thinner.

But a desk? No.
A desk is not a place for dinner.

Call it food in face.”
Call it stuffing belly.”
Call it the internet
with toast and jelly.

Dinner at a desk
needs a re-label.
Because a desk,
will never be a dinner table.
