Description

“Things are hopping! Things are popping in fast food town!” Meet Speedy Lane, Jiffie Snack, Whiz-Bang Ewing, and all the folks responsible for getting the food out and eaten fast. The pace speeds through this book, until finally the cook has had enough. She leaves to work at a health food place “slowly serving nature’s greenery, to folks taking time to enjoy the scenery.” Waber hilariously poses the question, What’s the rush?
