Editorial Reviews

"This book IS delicious. Pun WAY intended. Imaginative and connecting.”  — Jamie Lee Curtis, Bestselling author of Today I Feel Silly and Other Moods that Make My Day

“Barney Saltzberg has done it again!  A DELICIOUS STORY is hilarious, delightful, and . . . DELICIOUS! Kids will eat this one up!" — Peggy Rathman, Caldecott Winner for Officer Buckle and Gloria

“Sweet and silly, this book reminds us that everyone is hungry for a good story.” — Sherri Duskey Rinker, New York Times Bestselling author of Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site

"A delightful picture book that is a doorway to much for kids! From learning about what a story is, to thinking about characters and their feelings, to making new friends, this picture book has it all. Wonderful illustrations and use of space on the page put it over the top!” — Lorie Barber, Anderson’s Bookshop

"A fun story about stories!" — Kate Reynolds, Colgate Bookstore

"Great book for younger elementary level readers. They can read and share this with others." — Pam Gombert, Kentwood Public Schools (MI)

"A spunky, laugh-out-loud picture book for fans of "The Book with No Pictures." A great book for story time!" — Amanda Zirn Hudson, Bethany Books

"A super cute book that would be great for story times. Perfect for fans of Elephant and Piggy books. The surprise ending will delight young readers."  — Lauren Wilder, Jefferson County Library

"A delightfully meta-story perfect for the early elementary audience. The use of dialogue is a popular choice for students raised on Mo Willems and aspiring to the graphic novels older students devour around them. The illustrations are also delightful, both both and clear and sketchy lines. Very successful." — Erin Tobiasz, Youth Services Librarian, C. C. Mellor Memorial Library

Unwrapping Some Illustrations

The Book

This sweet creative story has all the earmarks of a winner. It is a perfect read-aloud that kids will gobble up. A little mouse is looking for a story from a big mouse... after all they are in a book.  Big mouse confesses there is no book because he ATE it!  Oh my now that is a problem.  

Little mouse will have no excuses .... he wants a story and he wants it now.  They squeak back and forth trying to problem solve and creatively find a solution.  Kids will love the fun surprise ending.  I did too.  

The illustrations are great and the mice characters are adorable.  I highly recommend " A Delicious Story".
