School Library Journal - 06/01/2012 K-Gr 3—Using like-colored foods, Warner created imaginative landscapes and then photographed them for this picture book with rhyming text. He highlights one color per spread—purple, red, silver, green, white, etc.—with a large photograph covering most of the two pages. Some layouts are delicious and enticing, filled with sweet things ("If all the world were pink,/We'd live in a candy land."). Some are off-putting, although certainly creative. For example, a combination of beef and pork ribs, a pepper scorpion, and bacon bits create a red-themed desert world. The food landscapes built around basic palettes are strange, beautiful, and the stuff of dreams. White is a winter landscape of ice-cream trees and rocks and a white chocolate castle with towers made of waffle cones. In the silver world, the sea is constructed of mackerel, cod, and bass with hollowed-out squash boats bobbing in the harbor. Brown, of course, is a wonderland of chocolate trains and Kit-Kat railroad tracks. A delightful supplement that should be browsed at leisure.—Roxanne Burg, Orange County Public Library, CA - Copyright 2012 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
