The old Freya loved nothing more than a delicous meal. The new one has suddenly decided that food is not nice and that she won't take a single bite that night, or the next night, or the next! Before long, Mum and Dad are at their wits' end. But Grandma and Grandpa have seen the problem before, and they may hold the key to changing the stubborn little girl's mind. Fussy Freya uses a whimsical narrative and charming illustrations to explore a common childhood problem. In the process, it sensitively depicts a multicultural family and its cuisine, showcasing both parents' and grandparents' relationships with a child.
