Publication Date: May 13, 2014
Bob and Rob are two squirrels who just love eating corn on the cob. Their friends--a duck, a dog, a chicken, and a piglet--also love corn on the cob, but not Ella Mae Dobbs, a rabbit with a more refined palate. She's a little bit of a snob when it comes to trying foods she doesn't like. She prefers curly-cut carrots, hot cheese fondue, and especially tofu Bob and Rob devise a plan to get Ella Mae to try corn on the cob--and in return they will try some of her favorite foods too. And while they may not find their next favorite food, Bob, Rob, and even Ella Mae Dobbs find that it's important to try new foods. You may be pleasantly surprised at what you find. From debut author and illustrator Todd McQueen, Bob & Rob & Corn on the Cob is a whimsical, educational, and hilarious romp into the world of two corn on the cob-loving squirrels. Perfect for the picky eater in your life who isn't getting the message through Green Eggs and Ham, this is sure to have them giggling while trying foods they originally turned their noses up at.
