Overview: Take a bite out of the calendar with this cheerful collection of delicious seasonal poems, each one an ode to a favorite food! The daring popcorn astronauts are brave beyond compare-they scramble into puffy suits and hurtle through the air. And when they land, we say hooray and crowd around the spot to salt the little astronauts and eat them while they're hot. Dive into a watermelon lake and sing the praises of mac and cheese in this playful and poetic celebration of food. In spring, bow to the "Strawberry Queen" and eat "Only Guacamole." In summer you'll meet Bob the Ogre, who only eats corn on the cob, and in fall, you can learn "21 Things to Do with an Apple." And then in winter, retreat from the cold at "The Cocoa Cabana!" Stellar team Deborah Ruddell and Joan Rankin deliver a whimsical celebration of the tastiest treats of life in this palatable poetry collection
