Good Egg and Bad Apple

Not all the foods in the refrigerator get along like peas in a pod. The vegetables are steamed, and Bad Apple and Second Banana are the problem. Good Egg suggests his friends try different responses to these two bullies. They try hiding, then standing their ground. At first, Good Egg's tactics don't bear fruit. Only by using his noodle does Good Egg avoid getting scrambled and save his friends' bacon. In this story told on two levels, young readers will be entertained by the hijinks of the anthropomorphic food characters and will appreciate the allegory about not letting one bad apple spoil the bunch. Adult readers are served plenty of food for thought with hilarious gastronomical idioms and puns. An author's note explaining all the wordplay adds English language educational opportunities...

Good Egg and Bad Apple
Amanda Williams

This was a really funny children's book. The adults will get the food pun jokes and the children will learn a moral lesson reading this story about bullying. Absolutely perfect.

This was a cute way to talk about bullying with kids. There was no shortage of foody puns. Overall, I thought it was cleaver and I think kids, as well, as adults will find this funny.

I received an ARC of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Richelle Zirkle

Both our 2 and 4.5 year old boys enjoyed this title, but the clever use of the English language was over the heads. This title is much better suited to late elementary and middle grade readers due to content and presentation. Through idioms, the topic of bullying is addressed. The food related puns will provide plenty of laughs while getting the point across.
