Where there is food, there will be laughter (and crumbs).
In more than 40 exuberant poems and "vandalized" photographs, you'll meet a city kid who fantasizes about farming on a stoop, a girl with crumpets and cr pes in her head, and a boy with a pet cabbage. "Doctor Food" prescribes good food as medicine and "Dancing Kitchen" will have you shimmying with your skillet. From the amuse-bouche to the very last pea on the plate, A Moose Boosh celebrates food--growing it, making it, slurping it and especially sharing it with loved ones at the dinner table. Bon app tit
Poetry is food for the soul, food is poetry for the tongue.

Food writer Michael Pollan calls A Moose Boosh a "very funny book" while Kirkus Reviews says it is "a kid-friendly companion to Michael Pollan's Food Rules." The American Library Association named the book a 2015 Notable Children's Book and says "Readers and eaters are taken on a comical romp through the world of food using poetry and a visual feast of photographs enhanced with playful doodles."

Eric-Shabazz Larkin made his author/illustrator debut with A Moose Boosh. He made his picture book illustration debut with Farmer Will Allen and the Growing Table.
