This One and That One cannot agree on what to have for lunch. Mom needs to cook just one thing so she sends them off to consult Dad.

Reviews - What do customers think about Fried Pies and Roast Cake (This One and That One)?
DELIGHTFULLY AMUSING! May 9, 2005
Actress Jane Seymour and her husband, Actor James Keach, are among the latest celebrities to jump on the children's book bandwagon and are doing so very successfully. They've created a wonderful series of books in which their family of cats stand-in for their own family, allowing them to share their own experiences as parents and at the same time delighting children with the tales of their twin kittens, "This One and That One."
"Fried Pies and Roast Cake" addresses an issue that parents of young kids have always faced...the different wants of the kids and keeping them all happy. It's lunch time and Lady Jane cat asks This One and That One what they want to eat. Each of course wants a completely different menu. Mom tells the kids to decide soon. They ask Dad for help but Dad tells them to work it out. After much bickering, the kids decide to share and come with a crazy, mixed up menu that mom knows will be unappetizing. Mom finally suggests taking a couple of suggestions from each of them and making some today and some the next day.
Funny and charming, "Fried Pies and Roast Cake" is definitely the most amusing book by Seymour and Keach. The kids arguing over what they want is something that most parents can relate to. The book also teachs kids the value of sharing and compromise and in the end, both sides are happy. Once again, Geoffrey Planer provides colorful and fun illustrations that make this book a winner.
