Overview

Everyone loves popcorn! Newly updated with the latest research, a delicious 40th anniversary edition of a POP-ular classic.

Tony likes to cook. Tiny likes to read. And both twins like to eat . . . POPCORN!

So while Tiny cooks it, Tony reads about it: what popcorn is, how it's stored and prepared, legends and stories about it, and its history in Europe and North America.

A favorite since its original release in 1978, The Popcorn Book has sold nearly a million copies. This fresh new edition features refreshed interiors with bolder colors, and revised text-- updated with new information and vetted for accuracy by a Native American expert.

Colorful, funny, and informative, this nonfiction classic from the best-selling author-illustrator of Quiet, Strega Nona, and many more will teach you everything you need to know about this favorite snack food-- and leave you hungry for more. And because the best thing about popcorn is eating it, two great recipes for popping corn are included!
