Emily | 21 comments We are trying to come up with the name of a children's book that my mom read as a young girl. It is about a boy who was a very picky eater. He refused to finish his dinner and eventually turned into a shadow. I don't know what year it was written, but my mom would have been reading it (or having it read to her) in the late 1940s/early 1950s.
