There's A Book

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs by Judi Barrett and Illustrated by Ron Barrett

The tiny town of Chewandswallow was very much like any other tiny town except for its weather which came three times a day, at breakfast lunch and dinner.

But it never rained rain and it never snowed snow and it never blew just wind. It rained things like soup and juice. It snowed things like mashed potatoes. And sometimes the wind blew in storms of hamburgers.

Life for the townspeople was delicious until the weather took a turn for the worse. The food got larger and larger and so did the portions. Chewandswallow was plagued by damaging floods and storms of huge food. the town was a mess and the people feared for their lives.

Something had to be done, and in a hurry.

This is an absolute favorite of The Baker’s (aka my hubby) and we’ve been meaning to share it with the kiddos as well. Soon! It’s recently been made into a major animated motion picture and though my hubby says it’s completely different from the actual book it definitely still looks like fun. Take a look:

    This one was a favorite at our house for years. At one point, I think we actually had three copies of it.

    The movie’s cute enough, but is totally different from the book, plot, feeling, everything.
