Matilda Macaroni wants to be an adventurous eater, but her parents only eat chicken fingers, pizza and elbow macaroni with the orange powder on it. With the help of her grandmother, she learns to cook a variety of food and finally convinces her parents to try it. To their surprise, it's delicious! This clever take on picky eaters is a fun read for all ages.

— Cathy


Who's the picky eater? Not Matilda A little girl with adventurous tastes turns the tables on her food-fussy parents and teaches them that dinner can be more than chicken nuggets.

Matilda Macaroni loves to try new foods, whether it's her grandma's jambalaya or sushi at a sleepover. But, in this fun, twisted picture book, it's finicky mom and dad--not the child--who eat only pizza with pepperoni (delivered), burgers from a bag, or noodles from a box. Eager to experience new flavors, Matilda secretly sets out to learn how to cook, satisfy her hunger for something more . . . and expand her parents' palates, too. There's also a Macaroni family recipe for quiche that young cooks can try.
