Item description for I Only Like What I Like by Julie Baer...
His full name is Dewey Jackson Braintree-Berg and he only likes what he likes. He only likes one certain black and white cat. He only likes an apple if it's red. And he only likes one particular yellow and white house. You'd think that a boy with such set likes and dislikes would hardly ever have any fun, wouldn't you? So on Monday, when Dewey, who will only eat noodles shaped like letters is invited for dinner and sits facing a bowl of squiggly green macaroni, what can he do?? And what are those wriggly green squiggles anyway?

Excellent children's book breaks away from boring traditiona Apr 28, 2004
Written and illustrated by Julie Baer for children ages 3 to 8, I Only Like What I Like is the story of a young boy (Dewey), who, at first, is picky and closed-minded. During the development of the story, Dewey is faced with new foods, experiences, and challenges. The boy learns to adapt and expand his world view, realizing that there are different ways to interpret the world. The illustrations are excellent and encourage children to use their creativity to interpret them. I recommended this book with no reservations.
A recommended parable about learning to adapt to change Aug 12, 2003
Written and illustrated by Julie Baer for children ages 3 to 8, I Only Like What I Like is the story of Dewey Jackson Braintree-Berg, a young boy who is strict and severe in his personal preferences. Dewey only likes apples that are red, one certain black-and-white cat, noodles shaped like letters on Monday, and so forth. But sometimes Dewey is faced with new foods, new things, and new challenges that he has never seen before - what is a boy to do? A distinctive style of slightly discordant color illustrations enhances this entertaining and very strongly recommended parable about learning to adapt to change.
