Synopsis

Like children everywhere, Sugar the cat refuses to eat food she doesn’t like!

All children have heard their parents try to threaten, cajole, and guilt them into eating their vegetables. And it’s no different for Leo’s new cat, Sugar. She’s hungry, but when Leo generously gives her his last piece of birthday cake, Sugar will not eat it. Leo finally gives up. He fixes himself a chicken sandwich and some milk. Suddenly, guess who is up on the counter, nibbling at Leo’s sandwich?

Features a great cast of neighborhood characters—each with their own tidbit of advice—that is also the perfect tool for parents to use with children to talk about food.

“It took me two hours to bake this cake, and another hour to do the frosting roses,” he kvetches to Sugar, after Jimmy the coffee-cart guy suggests a guilt trip: “All that, and now you're not interested?” While Sugar's lack of affect is well served by Potter's (The Boy Who Loved Words ) flat, naï...
