Food, glorious food!

If there's one thing that transcends time, it's our love for food! But what did people generations ago consume? And what will we eat in the years ahead? James Solheim's Eat Your Woolly Mammoths! serves up the stories behind the world's most delicious, nutritious, and amazing foods--from the Stone Age to the future. For readers who love the fascinating facts that bring history to life. Let the feast begin!

Would you like a plate of woolly mammoth? Or perhaps a sample of fresh tuna eyeballs? From scorpions on sticks and llama salami to oysters and chocolate chip cookies, you'll travel through the centuries and around the world and discover the amazing foods that have been eaten--and enjoyed--throughout history.

Eat Your Woolly Mammoths! explores the history of food and is full of fun, digestible facts that young historians, cooks, and scientists will gobble up. An accessible, educational, and funny text combined with laugh-out-loud illustrations make this ideal pick for independent readers and snackers everywhere. A great choice for readers who munched through Ripley's Believe It or Not: Fun Facts and Silly Stories and the National Geographic Kids: Weird but True books.

Includes sidebars, fun facts, recipes, additional resources, and more!

 

James Solheim is the author of It's Disgusting and We Ate It!, illustrated by Eric Brace. Powered as a child by his grandmas' Norwegian cooking--lefse and sandbakkels and søtsuppe (potato tortillas, sugar cookies, and sweet soup)--he now speaks Norwegian with his own kids and continues his family's traditions. But his grandmas' kindness is his biggest family tradition of all. He lives in Nebraska.

 

To order a personalized bookplate, just leave your note for personalization in the order comments on your online order. James will sign bookplates that will be sent out with your book. The book will be officially released on May 3rd. Order a copy before that date to request personalization.
