School Library Journal - 07/01/2019 PreS-Gr 1—In this title, Carle and 13 of his children's book world friends write about their favorite foods. For Dan Santat, ramen is the best ever and for Laurie Keller, it is French fries. Each artist is given a spread that includes large illustrations. Text reflects the individual author's style. For example, Greg Pizzoli says his favorite food is salad: "I like the carrots, the cukes, and currants,/but what I like most of all, is that nothing in my bowl/ had parents." This title has an attractive layout and design. Text of the favorite foods ranges from one line to a couple of paragraphs. Illustrations clearly embrace the style of those featured and will be recognizable to devoted readers. Back matter includes a baby picture of each contributor as well as a mention of some of their titles. There is also a spread with pictures and a description of The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. This book would work well in a group or one-on-one setting. VERDICT Highly recommended for public and school libraries to be used in programs and for circulation. This vibrant and fresh title is a winner.—Robin Sofge, Prince William Public Library System, VA - Copyright 2019 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
