One night Wilma Lee Wu sits down for dinner—in front of some food that might’ve been meat—when she declares she can’t take it: “Please, no more beige food!”
Wilma Lee Wu can’t take her bland food and mushy meals any longer! She decides she needs to go on a culinary adventure and learn some new dishes from her neighbors. As a foodie family, we loved reading and seeing the illustrations of dishes from around the world. There is Khun Joe’s pad thai, Ms. Azar’s Lebanese kibbe and…..Monseiur Poutine’s frog legs?!? Hmmmmm…..yes, we were all laughing at that one.
This fun rhyming book will make picky eaters curious about different foods as well as different cultures. It’s actually a sequel to a book called The Change Your Name Store, No More Blecky Beige Food, which I admit I have yet to read although it is now high on my list of books to get! If you are looking for a book with big personalities, different diversities, and sprinkled with interesting recipes, this is the book for you. No beige food allowed!
