What's for dinner? How about skizzle klumps n' gizzardlumps? A hilarious look at mealtime with a pair of persnickety eaters, in the most fun made-up language ever

Would you like a bite of frizzle frazzle hotchy potch? How about a plate of mushy gushy bloobarsh? NERP, says our hero. Nerpity nerpity nerp (That's "NO" to you ) With nonsense language and humorously expressive illustrations, this delightfully silly picture book tells the story of two picky eaters--one child, one pet--of indiscriminate species, a multitude of supposedly tasty goodies, and one surprising solution to a familiar childhood situation.
