It’s time for Ferdie to eat lunch, but he'd much rather find the special part for his fighter ship. When big sister Viola promises to help him, he comes to the table. But he finds broccoli on his plate, and carrots! Ever resourceful and imaginative, Viola convinces Ferdie that dinosaurs from the Jurassic ate broccoli to escape their fiercest predators, and that carrots are just like the Orange Power Sticks that aliens eat for super vision. Does't Ferdie want to be just like them? Viola continues to persuade Ferdie to eat up, but when her energy finally flags, it’s Ferdie's turn to create a wonderful surprise.

Just as in A Few Blocks, an ordinary event seen through a child's eyes becomes an amazing adventure. This time the children switch back and forth between the lunch table and the elaborate fantasy worlds they imagine (shown in Cybèle Young's intricate paper sculptures, which she has created from paintings of the children’s surroundings). At the end of the story, the world of the imagination and the everyday magically come together, and Viola and Ferdie each enjoy a few bites.

About the Author:

Cybèle Young is an award-winning artist who exhibits her exquisite paper sculpture (Japanese paper printed with etched copperplates) internationally. She has illustrated several books for children, including Pa's Harvest by Jan Andrews, which was nominated for a Governor General's Award for Illustration and Jack Pine by Christopher Patton. She has most recently written and illustrated A Few Blocks, a Kirkus Reviews Best Children’s Book and Ten Birds, winner of a Governor General's Award for Illustration. She lives with her family in Toronto.

From Booklist:

The sibling rivalry and teasing fun in this playful picture book will grab young children, especially because the younger one turns the tables. After Ferdie refuses to eat the veggies his older sister, Viola, has cooked for him, she tells him elaborate fantasies about how broccoli helped dinosaurs escape the fiercest predators, the carrots helped creatures see beyond the solar system, and so on. Paper collages show Viola’s wild fantasies, which contrast with small, spare ink-and-watercolor drawings, set against lots of white space, that show the children’s realistic body language—Ferdie sulking and overwhelmed––until the triumphant climax, when Ferdie creates a luscious surprise that draws Viola in, and their play begins again. In this fresh take on a familiar family scenario, the fantasies are as much fun as the standoffs. Preschool-Grade 2. --Hazel Rochman
