    Story
    "A Treat to Your Ears and Tummy!"
    If you could sum up Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs / Pickles to Pittsburgh in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, Whimsical, Exciting


    What did you like best about this story?

    The description of the worlds of food and the love the children shared for their grandfather.


    What about Jerry Terheyen and Linda Terheyen ’s performance did you like?

    I liked their positive energy and tones used to keep the child spirit bright for this book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When they said that everyone in the world should have food.


    Any additional comments?

    Great read! Took me back to my childhood.

    Any additional comments?

    These are pretty good kids' stories; they're creative, funny, quirky, and relatable (in that kids love food). However, they lacked something that could have made them more creative. I think I disliked the bookends of realism; I disliked that Chewandswallow was merely a fantasy. Then again, the world of the Wild Things in Where The Wild Things Are is just as much a fantasy. Yet, it feels much more real than the fantasy land of these stories. I think most kids would enjoy them though. I just don't think they'll be the kinds of stories remembered vividly in later life.

    Also, the male narrator was great, but the female narrator (especially in Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs) was really annoying.
