Who's the picky eater? Not Matilda A little girl with adventurous tastes turns the tables on her food-fussy parents and teaches them that dinner can be more than chicken nuggets.
Matilda Macaroni loves to try new foods, whether it's her grandma's jambalaya or sushi at a sleepover. But, in this fun, twisted picture book, it's finicky mom and dad--not the child--who eat only pizza with pepperoni (delivered), burgers from a bag, or noodles from a box. Eager to experience new flavors, Matilda secretly sets out to learn how to cook, satisfy her hunger for something more . . . and expand her parents' palates, too. There's also a Macaroni family recipe for quiche that young cooks can try.
