The story takes place in a town called Chewandswallow, a very small town! There are no food markets. The food falls from the sky. In the morning it rains orange juice, low clouds of sunny-side-up eggs and pieces of toast. That?s just to give you an idea. At the end, the food keeps getting bigger and bigger. For example, meatballs started out the regular size then they become the size of a Burger King store, then the size of a mountain.

We think you should read this book to see what happens in the end. We recommend this book because it?s funny to see food falling from the sky. And in all of the pictures there is food. There are a few surprises in the end. (The surpise is in the pictures.
