4.0 out of 5 stars come on and play with your food 18 Jun 2006
By Melissa Sack - Published on Amazon.com
You know that you are not supose to play with your food right? Well now is the time to break that rule! The creators of this book sure have! They have created figures and things that go out of all sorts of fruits and vegetables! Paired up with rhyming text this book is sure to be a hit for kids of all ages!

We love the entire series of these food books. The photography is so well done and the idea of turning food objects into animals and objects is so clever.

Parents of toddlers will enjoy reading this aloud. Not too many words are on each page.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly creative 19 Jan 2007
By Carolyn Jean - Published on Amazon.com
Fast Food and ALL the books by Joost Elffers and Saxton Freymann are incredibly creative! The vivid colors draw the kids in and the imagination they have with food captures their attention! Fast Food makes my kids want to eat their vegetables! As does "Mr. Pompos' Nose" and "The Lonely Sea Horse". They have others too! Not to mention, as an adult, you'll learn what some vegetables and fruits look like that you may have never seen "live" before. It's a great education on "foodology" for the family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Gift for a family 12 Jan 2008
By Samantha Baxter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a cute little book. It's always tough to buy gifts for your co-workers because you can easily go so wrong, but I bought this for my boss (who has children) and it was absolutely perfect. The book is adorable, the ideas are so imaginative, and it's a great way to encourage little kids to start healthy eating habits with the imaginative use of vegetables (it makes the vegetables gain so much personality). With all of the junk food marketing targeted at children, this is a refreshing change to see healthy fruits and vegetables presented as an equally enticing alternative.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good encouragement for good eating! 24 May 2009
By Lisa S. Kirkman - Published on Amazon.com
My mom picked up this book for my 2.5-year-old daughter laughing her a** off. My daughter had to warm to it and now is old enough to appreciate that there are two levels...people in vehicles AND food. We're struggling to get her to eat her veggies and this book helped us be more effective with that conversation. Delightful and clever artistry. I really adore the green onion people and my daughter loves the little fat mushroom people. I do find myself wondering 'who has time to make this stuff' but Joost and Saxton seem to have made it profitable to play with their food!

5.0 out of 5 stars Clever Cuts 30 Aug 2007
By H. M. Panagos - Published on Amazon.com
Here is another wonderful little book of fruit and vegetable art that can't fail to enchant adults and children alike. This one is all about vehicles: trains, buses, cars, trucks, aircraft, boats, all created from common vegetables, piloted and ridden by mushroom-, radish-, scallion-, and banana-people, among others. Each page is good for a chuckle and a second look, don't miss cauliflower Santa in a pear sleigh pulled by a ginger reindeer! This is a child's picture book to be sure, for children of all ages. As in all the other books in this series, the illustrations are very creative. Much of the fun is identifying the foods depicted in each scene. Look carefully or you might miss the parsley tree on the edge of the hot balloon page. Children can't help but get caught up in the game. The text is short and snappy, simple rhymes and easy rhythm for reading. It's a book suitable for group reading or quiet time with your toddler on your lap.
