Reviewing Foodie Books for Kids!

So I've been doing some reviewing for School Library Journal and sort of enjoying it...

...however, I recently shared with the reviews editor that my passion was food and food writing, and I (professionally, of course, because I am nothing if not professional) begged her to give me food-related books to review.  So in the mail today, I received THREE books to review...all
 FOOD-RELATED!  So coming up:


- Sylvie by Jennifer Sattler (Random House, May 2009)
- I Love Chocolate by Davide Cali, illustrated by Evelyn Daviddi (Tundra, Feb 2009)
- The King's Taster by Kenneth Oppel, illustrated by Steve Johnson & Lou Fancher (HarperCollins, June 2009)

Want to know what I'm most excited about?  That there are three upcoming food-related books for kids...and those are just the ones I'm reviewing, let alone the multitudes that I am not!  Between that and the Disney Channel episode this morning, among other things, I'm feeling wildly optimistic today.

Dude, I was totally impressed by the scope of the countries represented on Pass the Plate! I might have been a more adventurous eater as a kid if I had had these fabulously chic teens encouraging me to venture out of my meat & potatoes lifestlye!
