    The beloved, bestselling tale of edible weather is brought to life!

    If food dropped like rain from the sky, wouldn't it be marvelous! Or would it? It could, after all, be messy. And you'd have no choice. What if you didn't like what fell? Or what if too much came? Have you ever thought of what it might be like to be squashed flat by a pancake?

    • Good for older kids

      This is a great book BUT not for little ones. I did not realze that the recommended age range is 9-11 years - quite old. My son is four and he does like this book but it is just a bit over his head. He doesn't mind me reading it to him but he would rather hear a book more to his age range. he hasn't asked to hear the story since the first time I read it. This one will probably be better for him in a few years.

    • OK, but Part 2 is better

      I actually prefer the sequel, Pickles to Pittsburgh.

    • don't buy this booik

      This book is not returnable so I will either trash it (I have never disposed of a book in this way as I DO NOT approve of censorship in any form), or use it as a prime example in teaching children about the consequences of behaving irresponsibly and the dire consequences of walking away from an environmental disaster. Briefly, the story chronicles all varieties of food falling from the sky eliminating the need for people, in this town, to shop for food or cook. When excess food - garbage - throughout the town becomes unmanageable the residents move to another local to start all over again. Lesson: walk away from a mess and assume no responsibility: make no effort to brainstorm a solution - waster food and trash the environment.

    • Good for older readers

      This is not a book for new readers w/o parental assistance. With that in mind, if you have a young child that enjoys to read, this is a fun book. Again, this is not a first reader book.
