Tales for Very Picky Eaters is a hilarious story about a young boy named James who is a very picky eater. His dad makes very creative attempts to get him to try the foods that he refuses to eat by offering him outrageous alternative options. Instead of the broccoli or oatmeal he declines to eat, James could try the finest dirt that has been walked over by the most skilled chefs or gum that has been chewed one thousand times by children with extra clean teeth. James eventually discovers that he just might like some of the foods he has been apprehensive about trying once he gives them a chance. Budding readers will love giggling their way through this fun early reader.
