Wild Boars Cook

Wild Boars Cook by Meg Rosoff

In this funny picture book, award-winning author Meg Rosoff brings back her characters from Meet Wild Boars. This time the boars are HUNGRY, HUNGRY, HUNGRY, and are willing to eat anything. They CRUNCH, CRUNCH, CRUNCH candy and hot dogs, and MUNCH, MUNCH, MUNCH on pickles and old boots. That is, until they find a recipe for a delicious, yummy, massive pudding! 

But even after they devour the pudding they are still hungry! In the end, they find another recipe for a massive cookie! Children wont actually see the boars make this one but are instead left with the directions and the possibility of making it themselves!

I loved this book and think children will too. It's funny and the illustrations by award winning Sophie Blackall are fabulous. This book could be used with mini lessons on food, good manners, or just for fun! I would recommend this book for ages 3 and up, and think it's a positive addition to any home or school library. School Library Journal gave it a starred review, stating: 

"These wonderful hijinks with the endearing boars are pictured in wildly imaginative illustrations, including endpapers that look like boar hair. Libraries should not miss out on this fun title..."

This is a book trailer that I made for the book.

Happy Reading.
