About this item
This is quite possibly the only picture book in which the sun is portrayed as a giant Jell-O mold and mustard arrives in the form of hail. There's no need for grocery stores in the city of Chewandswallow: food rains down from the sky. But a change in the weather blows in massive problems....Selected by the New York Times Book Review as one of the Best Illustrated Children's Books of 1978.
The tiny town of Chewandswallow was very much like any other tiny town except for its weather, which came three times a day--at breakfast, lunch, and dinner! Life for the townspeople was delicious until the miraculous food weather took a turn for the worse. The food got larger and larger, and so did the portions. The flood of huge food caused chaos, and the people feared for their lives. Something had to be done . . . before it was too late!
This beloved bestseller is now available for the youngest readers in this Classic Board Book edition!
