Reviews

What food is the prickliest? The smelliest? The wobbliest? The latest book in Brocket's Clever Concepts series celebrates superlatives though a mouth-watering assortment of foods. While the opening sentence, 'Superlatives are words we use to compare things, ' may be imprecise--after all, it ignores comparative adjectives such as pricklier, smellier, and wobblier--all but the stickliest stickler for grammar will get over it immediately and go on to enjoy every page of this enthusiastic presentation. Aimed at young children, the simply written text leads the way through concepts such as crunchiest, flakiest, and slimiest. Along the way, Brocket asks questions ('Do you have a favorite gooey treat?') that are sure to draw answers. Brightly illustrated, this picture book offers nicely composed color photos of fresh-looking foods that are well chosen to demonstrate the ideas in the text. Whether selected for classroom units on comparison or food, or chosen just for fun, this colorful concept book has plenty to offer.--Booklist
