Description


A scrumptiously adorable story about a boy, a school play and his love for food. Featuring foods from all over the world, this debut picture book will make you hungry for more!

Frankie has a problem: he has too many favorite foods. He can't bring himself to choose just one to be for the school play, so on the day of the performance, he's still without a costume. His teacher comes up with a delicious idea: what if Frankie becomes the Costume Manager? That way, he can parlay his love of all things culinary into the whole production. From adding some last-minute garnishes to helping the rice and beans into their costumes, Frankie shines backstage until he has a brilliant idea and decides to make his debut on the menu as something that combines his love for all his favorite foods . . .

In this funny and scrumptiously adorable story, readers will delight in the variety of foods represented and the clever performances full of silly word play and sweet camaraderie. In Kelsey Garrity-Riley's author-illustrator debut, she shows the joy of food and revels in celebrating the way food can bring people together and inspire creativity.

Give the Dark My Love made me really think about the phrase "Desperate times call for desperate measures." From the ignorance of the nobles to the speed of which the plauge spreads and the lingths to which Nedra went to try and stop it. With a plot that kept on thickening and characters full of secrets, Give the Dark My Love was amazing. I would would recommend this book to anyone bored of the same plot and quest in their reads. - Kaitlyn, customer age 13
