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.
