Carl Warner is a professional photographer known for his miniature landscapes made entirely from edible ingredients. "A World of Food" presents 12 of his amazing pictures, each one showing young readers what the world might look like if there were only a single color. Yellow is a desert made of pasta palm trees, cereal sand, and swiss cheese pyramids, while Orange features pumpkin cottages, carrot trees, and apricot leaves. Playful verse accompanies each image, guiding viewers through the pictures and inviting them to figure out the various foods used (which are all identified at the back of the book). This is a wonderful book about colors and creativity for parents and children to look through together and discover the many different foods that make up Warner's fantastical world.
