Description
In this delightful, utterly delicious picturebook, a little girl joins her mom to learn about--and eat--fabulous foods from around the world. Sushi, biscotti, houska, canja, couscous, megadarra, smogastarta, crepes, jambalaya and samosas all star in full color alongside a hilarious Siamese and a beagle who join in the family's culinary adventure. There's even a dancing crayfish or two.
