Too say that Alvie eats soup is somewhat of an understatement I think if I were titling this book I would have either called it Alvie Eats Soup Only Soup Nothing But Soup or Alvie Eats Soup a modern tall tale because Alvie eats nothing but soup He is beyond the epitome of the picky eater he is the hyperbole of a picky eater And in tall tale Through the Language Glass format his parents go a bit overboard trying to cure him of this problem before his worldamous chef grandmother comes to visit The book is humorous but not laugh out loud uality It is really tempting to over analyze the story and ask why the parents are so concerned about Alvie only eating soup but not concerned at all about his sister who eats EVERYTHING in sight But it is a tall tale and in tall tale style his sister who eats anything is the hyperbole counterpart to Alvie s hyperbole picky eater My main complaint with the book is the way the text is displayed It really can be all over the page and in several different onts which can make missing parts of the story all too easy I would have preferred there to be of a pattern to the text ont and placement Private Arrangements (Forged of Steele, for easier readingThis would be a great choice when teaching about tall tales and hyperbole It also might be aunny way to address picky eating Alvie is a picky eater he only eats soup His Granny a You Are Not A Gadget famous chef is comingor a visit His parents try to get him to eat new oods but all Alvie wants is soup You will enjoy the endingThe book has cute illustrations that remind me of a comic book with text and illustrations combined Another Alvie eats soup That's it No swapping no sampling Just soup Alvie's parents are at thei.
