Review by Stacey

Little Chef is a colourful, foodie book about a young boy who feels like he is living inside a giant picnic basket. His day has ups and downs. Sometimes he feels sluggish like Peanut Butter and Jam sandwiches, other times he feels happy as a flaky croissant moon.

The story is all about how to overcome a bad day via the medium of food. The story was pleasant enough, though it did start to drag at about 24 pages in, there was just so much that had happened in Little Chef’s life that it became overwhelming, especially with the bad times he was having.

The book is beautifully illustrated with computer-generated images that really emphasise the food Little Chef was thinking about as metaphors to what was going on in his life.

It is a decent read and one that will have children scouring the illustrations looking for the author’s dog that she has hidden within one of them. There are also activities to complete at the back of the book too.
