Item description for You're Thinking About Tomatoes by Michael Rosen...
An antique picture, a mad celebrity mummy, and 18th-century Britain come to life in this zany and unorthodox novel. In this sequel to the successful You're Thinking About Doughnuts, protagonist and hero Frank once again finds himself in a different era when a school field trip leads to unanticipated adventures in the colonial past. He soon finds himself on a quest to discover the identity of Sheba, a black servant girl trapped in a living picture. In the process he confronts issues of slavery, multiculturalism, and colonialism.
