The beloved, bestselling tale of edible weather is brought to life!

If food dropped like rain from the sky, wouldn't it be marvelous! Or would it? It could, after all, be messy. And you'd have no choice. What if you didn't like what fell? Or what if too much came? Have you ever thought of what it might be like to be squashed flat by a pancake?

Oh no, it’s raining food. What is the town going to do?

In this story, Grandpa tells a bedtime story about a town where food rains down three times a day. No one shops for food. Unfortunately things begin to go wrong. Food storms happen, food becomes larger, and strange food combinations come down. In order to survive, the people make boats out of stale food and sail to a new land where they have to learn to buy their own food.

This is a unique and timeless story. The illustrations are drawn by the author's husband. They are complex so there is a lot to look at on each page.

What child wouldn't enjoy a story about food falling from the sky? The story is longer and more complex than a typical picture book so I would recommend it especially for ages 4-9. The upper age range would enjoy this as a book they can read for themselves.
