Item description for Food Fight! by Carol Diggory Shields & Doreen Gay-Kassel...
Overview Late one night, the salad greens declare "Lettuce have a party!" and food emerges from cabinets and cupboards to join in, until the tuna fish band tells garlic it stinks and things start to go bad.
Publishers Description With all the energy of a suddenly opened, well-shaken can of soda, the poet Carol Diggory Shields imaginatively creates a universe of food with a mind of its own. The claymation food by Doreen Gay-Kassel looks almost too fabulous to eat!

Reviews - What do customers think about Food Fight!?
Just as much fun for parents! Aug 30, 2008
I first took this book to my 3-year-old son's preschool class to read to all the little kiddos when they were studying food groups. Now, my 3-year-old son loves this book because of the personalities of the various foods and the rhythm of the storytelling. He can recite it almost from memory. He loves it so much that lines from the book sometimes become punch lines in our day-to-day conversation. "Hey, wait for me, the ketchup cried!" he will shout and giggle as he's trying to catch up while walking. As the parent, I love the plays on words--it's so creative and captures my interest, as well. This book and "Pigeon Finds a Hotdog" are my son's all-time favorite books.
Daughter's fav book Jun 10, 2008
My little 2 year old heard this story for the first time at school. She kept saying the words that she had memorized and we had to go buy it for home. Since we purchased it three months ago, we read it almost every night (sometimes several times a day). The kids go wild for this story and you will too!
Excellent Apr 5, 2008
This book came in excellent condition, as though I bought it right from the store. I am truly impressed.
Clever puns and fun story will amuse kids and adults too! Mar 10, 2008
This book is full of funny puns (great for explaining what it means to tell a joke or make a pun to a serious four-year-old), a cute story, and a nice rhyme scheme. We've probably read this book hundreds of times by now and we're not totally sick of it (unlike so many other books we loathe but have to keep reading over and over). Now our 2 year old likes it too, so it's probably going to be a favorite in our house for years more! Terrific "illustrations" which are actually clay sculptures and very cute.
Very Fun Read Feb 28, 2008
I agree with many of the other reviewers, this is a clever book! The author was very clever with the words used in the book especially relating it to foods (The garlic singing and another food yells, "You stink!"). I appreciate the drawings, colors and creative of the book. My daughter, who is four, wants me to check out at least once a month. I highly recommend this book as bedtime read.
