A poisonously good book! 10 Aug 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: School & Library Binding
"Eat Your Poison, Dear" is a great book that I have enjoyed immensely. The story tells about how an entire grade is afflicted with the same sickness, and then reveals the truth behind the disease.
I have enjoyed this book for many reasons. I liked the fact that it was a regular novel that contained a mystery for Sebastian Barth (the main character) to solve. You could follow his lines of reasoning, so you were able to understand how he came across the solution to the poisoning in the school. I also liked the unexpected twist that occurred at the end.
On the whole, it was written well, but it wasn't an absolutely AMAZING book. It was interesting and amusing, and a great book to read for some summer fun.
I'd recommend it for 6th-9th graders.

Eat Your Poison, Dear 12 Mar 2004
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
Eat Your Poison, Dear is about a bunch of 8th graders. In the story, after one day at there everyday normal middle school cafeteria a student had gotten sick or so everyone said, he got the flu. Everyone felt sorry for this middle schooler. Need less to say, another student if fact didn't feel that the student had gotten the flu, in fact he had thought that he had gotten poisoned. Every Prembroke Middle Schooler had eatten at that cafeteria before and they had never gotten sick. Until that very day came.....the one kid who knew that it couldn't possibley be the flu, went in and investagated the cafeteria. He decided to ask the lunch aids if he could "help out" in the kitchen. His help out was more like an investagation. He started to kinda interview all the cafeteria staff and start to ask a lot of questions. He had gotten through all the staff members when he came across a staff member that he had not yet interveiwed. Her name was Miss Swille. In the middle of his interview he came across a jar. A lonely jar with little herbs and spices in it. He asked her what she did with those herbs and spices, she replied that she adds them to all school lunches, but only the 8th graders. When she said that she only adds them to the 8th graders lunches, he replied why do you only put them in our lunches but not the 6th and 7th graders, she said because your grade is specail. He replies with an indeed. So after a couple of minutes, Miss Swille said that she had to get back to work so she can prepare for the 7th graders lunches. He said ok i was preety much done anyways. So Miss Swille went into the back kitchen and seem to have forgoten so the student took a small white envelope and sprinkled just a little of her famous herbs and spices into the envelope. He ran back to his house and called his friend and then his friend came running over. He explaind everything that happened with the herbs and spices. So they both were walking out of his house with the small envelpoe and his friend asked where are we going? He said we are going to Milo Groot's house. Milo Groot was really good at finding out what things ment and how to figure out what is in the herbs and spices that Miss Swille is hidding. Now I'm not going to tell the ending because it gets really good. This is a great book if you are the kind of perosn who likes mystery book. This book had a surprising ending and its a great book to read for fun! I would recomend this book to children of the ages to 7 to adult. Its a great book even for adults. Its more of a childrens book but, its a fun book for adults or teens to read too.
Do or Die 14 Feb 2003
By Gay N. Ramsey - Published on
Format: Paperback
In this story there is a young boy named Milo Groot, and he got food poisoning from the school cafeteria. He gets very sick and his best friend Berry tries to help him figure out who had done it? While trying to figure out the mystery some strange things happen to Milo and Berry. Milo just kept getting sicker and sicker and Berry started to see into the future little by little (none believed him not even Milo). And every time he saw into the future he would feel a lick feeling in his stomach. But that wouldn't stop him! In the middle of the story one of the lunch ladies that they thought had done it got very sick and died, so there went one of the suspects! So the person who was poisoning these kids was younger then 30!
Berry being a good detective that he is, figured out the mystery. Milo seemed to be getting better and better after this event because the lunch lady was into witchcraft and was putting a spell on both boys. But she was putting the wrong spell on Berry and that's kind of why he figured out who did it!
Yes I liked this book! It was very informing, but at some points there was no point and it was very boring. I think I liked it more then I disliked it!
Eat Your Poison, Dear (Sebashtian Barth Mystery) 9 May 2012
By Rebecca L. Delass - Published on
Format: Paperback
Eat Your Poison, Dear (Sebashtian Barth) is a book about a bunch of 8th graders who see if their school cafeteria food is poison or real food. Sebashtian Barth is determined to figure out if the food is real or if it is poison. I personally liked the book but on another scale I didn't like it. I liked it because it was interesting, it had good details and I can relate to it. I didn't like it because the topic wasn't to much like a mystery it was more like a question and an answer in my opinion.What I mean by that is that it wasn't to much of a mystery. I would still recommend the book to anyone. So are you going to figure out if the food at Sebashtian's school is poison or not? You should!
