really liked it

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is a classic book about a Grandfather who tells his grandchildren a tall tale about a town that gets breakfast, lunch and dinner from the weather. It rains food. One day, the weather gets so awful that the people have to abandon their town. They start a new town and have to buy food from the grocery store.
The illustrations in this book are mostly black and white with some things accented with shades of red and yellow. Without the pictures, this book would not be worth reading. The pictures show the ridiculous size of the food that falls from the sky.
Children will enjoy reading this book, as it is a big exaggeration. After reading this book, an adult can discuss with the children ideas of what they would like to fall from the sky. Older children can read this book on their own, and younger children can have it read to them. All children will enjoy using their imaginations.
