A funny picture book about solving—finally!—a growing family's picky-eater problem!

Peter wants only milk, Lucy won’t settle for anything but homemade lemonade, and Jack is stuck on applesauce...

Each new addition to the household brings a new demand for a special meal. What’s a mother to do?

"A highly comic rhyming romp that surprisingly (and nicely) twists into a birthday story.” —School Library Journal
