Literary Lunches Round Up {2013}

Literary Lunches Round Up {2013} - Grab a book and pack lunch! -

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!

Our first ever Literary Lunch was WARNING! DO NOT OPEN THIS BOOK! from Adam Lehrhaupt.

We also celebrated Roald Dahl's 97th birthday with a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory lunch,..

...tried to catch the Gingerbread Man by Laura Murray who was loose in the school and trying to catch up to the kids at recess after they forgot him in the classroom.

We also helped but together a Tea Party for the bear cub in Ame Dyckman's book Tea Party Rules,

celebrated Susan Meddaugh's birthday the author and illustrator of the Martha Speaks books,...

...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.

We celebrated Crockett Johnson's birthday, author of Harold and The Purple Crayon,

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 Writingby 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!
