Feed-Em Fred is a chef on a mission - to help children everywhere appreciate healthy, home-cooked food. But his method, like his recipes, are a little unusual. Unless of course youre used to roasted snake with artichokes...

Written by Dustin Brooks and beautifully illustrated by Betty Le Bon FEED-EM FRED opens up the subject of food and healthy eating in a way kids can relate to. Porridge crawling with snails and cockroach pizzas are just two of the surprises William has to face in this 28-page rhyming, assault on the tastebuds.

Hopefully FEED-EM FRED will add a little light-hearted support to crusaders keen to change food culture in our homes. Failing that itll certainly do what all good stories should do, entertain us to the hilt.

In keeping with Le Bon’s cartoon scenes of a ski-nosed cook in a soot-colored jacket and toque, gleefully serving all-too-identifiable dishes to a comically dismayed child, the audio track features spirited narration in equally plummy British and French accents over bistro-type accordion music.
