The first poem in Robert Weinstock's Food Hates You, Too (Hyperion 2009), is about riding a Ferris Wheel:
Ferris-wheeling is appealingThe music of the poem captures the turning Ferris wheel, while the words capture everything else turning.
The title poem is all about what happens when food hate us:
That mayonnaise detests Pierre,All this anthropomorphized food ends up making the case – the children beg to be given a chance. Read this poem while your kid eats a plate of broccoli and it should do the trick.
The illustrations range from an Andy Warhol-esque stack of cans (p. 9) to Good Night Moon with praying mantids (pp. 14-15). The cover will grab any kid who loves to hate food – a giant tomato sticking its tongue out – and check out the marching broccoli inside. What fun!
