It is evident this was not written recently during these times of hypersensitivity towards EVERYTHING as much ado is made over the main character's fixation on food. Doubtless he would currently be classified under some DSM diagnosis and prescribed psychiatric medication. However, if you step back from the present day and simply accept the story the message is good, albeit nothing surpassing. (Spoiler: friends are more important than food.)
Our library discarded a copy of this book. The illustrations were so charming, I snatched it right up. The combination of what looks like pencil and fall colors just makes each page pop! The story is sweet too with a good moral worth reading.
