I saw this while perusing the kid's nonfic. I listed it under "graphic novel" because it is really more like a picture book than a cookbook. The pictures are really cute and are a great examples of how one can be creative in the kitchen. I think my favorite is the lady made of apple on an apple raft 'floating' in yogurt. The dishes are simple and no weird kitchen equipment is required.
Photos of food cleverly fashioned and shaped into animals, people, etc. Not too difficult, encourages the imagination and spontaneity, making use of the ingredients on hand, not just following instructions. Adorable! Plan to give this book as a gift to my sister, who has 3 very young children.
This book may encourage the children to play with their food but they might me more open about eating something healthy if it is what they need to make that certain smiley face.
The illustrations are amazing! They are creative and silly. Making food into art.
You could use this book in the classroom by having the students make their own silly faces or animals out of dried fruits supplied by the teacher. Dried fruits like apples, mango, and cranberries. Very fun and creative.
Funny Food goes beyond even what Fun with Food imagines. The creativity is inspiring and the photos are plentiful. My family will have endless fun with this book! My only issue is that there isn't much instruction on how to create your own masterpiece but I guess it's up to the individual and mimicking the photos. I hope there will be a sequel with veggies soon.
Food as Art! If I were rolling in dough (ha ha, pun intended), I would buy a case of this book and give them away as gifts-- wedding, shower, Christmas, birthday. (See more doing a google image search with this phrase: "funny food bill wurtzel").

My teenage daughter thought it was just creepy.
An easy "read"; quick to leaf through the pictures of the food.
they are a bit simple and repetitive; but fun.
Cute book! It gave me a lot of ideas for when my picky eater granddaughter comes to visit.
