Strange Foods

Strange Foods
by Michael J. Rosen
Library, 32 pages
Published August 1st 2013 by Lerner Publishing Group

From Goodreads:
You might think anchovies and fruitcake are pretty weird foods. But wait until you hear about durian, a huge, spiky fruit that smells like gym socks. Or salmiakki, the licorice with a salty, fishy taste. And don’t forget kopi luwak, the coffee made from…poop! Discover all kinds of unusual foods from around the world!

My Thoughts:
The gross-factor will always attract readers - particularly young yet reluctant readers. Strange Foods is full of funny illustrations as well as photos of some of the most bizarre things that people eat around the world. The presentation is attractive and will find an audience with many kids.
