Picture books are super good for kids and when they explore a world unknown to the kids and teach them in a friendly, enjoyable manner facts that they were not knowledgeable of, then a picture book has achieved a very high goal, indeed. Author, Ellen Fischer has teamed with illustrator, Laura Wood and captured some critters that might not be on the "best known" list of kids - Armadillo, Sea Turtle, Rattlesnake, Butterfly, Wallaby, Hedgehog, Ostrich, Giraffe, and Octopus. As each critter is said to wander into a restaurant the question is posed,What would they order?". An absurd menu item is the chance answer and then after a resounding, "NO WAY!" begins to lay out what that critter would really want to eat. The illustrations are cute, animated, and simple in nature but surely attention grabbing and fit the mood of the story. I love the change in color scheme this book has. Veering away from the basic color wheel of primary colors, there are olives, burnt orange, teal, and browns. This is a fun book and a welcome addition to our school's library.
