Artichoke Boy


Artichoke Boy
by Scott Mickelson
unpaged
picture book
Honesdale, Pa. : Boyds Mills Press, c2009
How many children know what an artichoke is? Maybe that is the point of this book, I am really not sure. It is about a boy that loves artichokes. He loves them so much that he is practically made of artichokes and he sees them everywhere. His whole family loves them too. An odd and rather pointless story accompanied by mixed media illustrations that are a little creepy. However, just because I didn't get the humor of this book doesn't mean some children won't.
