The King’s Taster

cover art of the King's TasterThe King’s Taster is very cute and frankly it is making me hungry 🙂

The Good:

  • It teaches children where certain foods come from
  • Fun animation
  • Easy to read
  • Kenneth Oppel signed my book in an awesome way (speech bubbles from the chef and the dog)

The Bad

  • None of the food is healthy
  • The spoiled king does not apologize or regret his behaviour
  • It is unrealistic they could get back from any of the countries, especially Mexico, before dinner and this takes away from the learning aspect of the book 

Conclusion: Fun read, and could be combined with teaching small kids how to make mini pizzas or simple food.
