In September of 2013 I started contributing to The Little Crooked Cottage as the official food caterer for their Mr. Pig LIVE! interviews. The Cottagers interview a character from a new book once a month and introduce the author and illustrator. Plus, the interviews are witty! and fun! I compiled all the fun book related lunches from 2013. Grab a book and make lunch!
We love Eric Carle and The Very Hungry Caterpillar and made a very special lunch in honor of his birthday!
...and laughed our way through Tom Angleberger's book Crankee Doodle! Crankee Doodle is the rewritten story of Yankee Doodle making this nonsensical and old song a comical, colorful and laugh out loud book for all ages.
and got to know Nugget and Fang a lovely children's book written by Tammi Sauer that explores the friendship of two unlikely friends: a fish and a shark.
We enjoyed the hilarious retelling of the original story of Little Red Riding Hood: Little Red Writing! by Joan Holub and Melissa Sweet,...
...and learned from Carnivores by Aaron Reynolds (and illustrated by Dan Santat) what happens when some of the world's best known carnivores - the lion, great white shark and wolf - share that their feelings get hurt when they are labeled as meanies.
We celebrated Marc Brown's 67th birthday with an Arthur themed lunch and...
...tried having a fun day like Squirrel in Squirrel's Fun Day by Lisa Moser (and illustrated by Valeri Gorbachev) a funny and friendship filled book perfect for reading aloud!
Swing by The Little Crooked Cottage for fun interviews with book characters, authors introducing their favorite books from their childhood, book suggestions and a lot more!
