A fun and vibrant picture book with a theme close to the hearts of many parents. Alfi Beasti will not eat anything he's supposed to. He'll happily taste the toothpaste or chew on a shoe but will not eat his breakfast, lunch or supper. His mum and dad try all sorts but to no avail. Eventually Grandma comes to the rescue by giving Alfi a chef's outfit for his birthday and together they cook up a birthday tea extravangza. All is resolved and Alfi will now eat anything as long as he's allowed to help to cook!

'Alfi Beasti was a fussy eater. He ate everything he shouldn't and nothing he should'. Having demolished books, shoes, tennis rackets and even hats his long-suffering mum and dad are almost at their wits end. Then Alfi suddenly discovers the thrills of cooking with Grandma Beasti and never looks back. He is hooked on cooking tasty fun food - and, of course, eating it!
Capturing a phase in the life of many young ones, when eating the right thing seems to be something of an issue, this story effortlessly and simply presents a wonderful way-in to enjoying eating good food. Without 'forcing the idea down your throat' this book takes the young listener and reader into the world of cooking and eating through the mischievous activities of young Alfi. The Beasti family are very-long-snouted ...well.. beasties. With each turn of the page we catch a glimpse into the colourful and busy lives of Alfi, mum and dad Beasti and of course, Grandma Beasti.
Each page is a feast for the eyes - with full-page illustrations in glorious and vivid colour, painted with attention to tiny detail by the author/illustrator, Kate Hardy. The text is appropriately minimal, with delicious descriptions and repeated catch-phrases just begging to be joined-in-with.
All we need now is an Alfi Beasti cook-along book for little ones.
This book is a must for all young children! Buy this book for your own children and for your school reading corner.
