    One thought on “A World of Food: Discover Magical Lands Made of Things You Can Eat!”

    1. LOVE this book!!! It's so creative and inspiring and exciting. Carl Warner created miniature landscapes using food and photographed them to create this book. I love the blend of imagination and talent that it took to make these incredible (edible) worlds and to photograph them so beautifully. I was also pleasantly surprised by how the little poems about each world are so well-written. I love pretty much every illustration (being vegan, I was disgusted by the red world (meat) and the silver world [...]

    2. A co-worker recommended this book. And I can see why. The illustrations are amazing to look at. It is like a giant eye spy type of book where the illustrations and looking at what food objects are used to make landscapes really make the book. The text is okay. And I wasn't happy that my favorite color (blue) wasn't one of the colors featured (yellow, grey, gold, orange, brown, red, pink, purple, green, silver, and white). And really, garlic is purple? I guess in that lightBut overall it is a fun [...]

    3. A strange, somewhat curious little book that still manages to engage.How to describe it. Well it is aimed at children but it is likely that many foodies and those with an innovative eye might find something of interest as well – whilst saying that they bought it for their children!This is a slim tome dominated by large, vibrant and somewhat strange images. Photographer Carl Warner is trying to encourage children to learn about different foods and stop being fussy eaters by exploring a range of [...]

    4. This mouth-watering book made me wonder: where did he get the idea and how did he make those images? Carl Warner imagines what the world would be like in several different colors of food. The world made of silver involved fish used in a way I would have never imagined. The world made of pink gives me cavities just looking at it. I don't know if I could choose one of these places to live, but I might like to visit the world of purple (nothing there I'd want to eat) and the world of orange. Absolu [...]

    5. I LOVE this book because not only its about food, but it is VERY colorful and incorporates the many different foods with a particular color to imitate what nature would look like if it were made of food with a particular color. This book also exposes the reader to many different foods which a great benefit if you happen to have a theme on nutrition.A learning experience I would use is assign each child a color then have the child sit at a table to draw out different foods for his/her assigned co [...]

    6. This book is AWESOME!!! Great imagination and photography. Each page is another incredible world. I only gave it 4 stars beacause I didn't like the meat and fish pages - but if it weren't for those it would be 5 stars. It's very creative and I think it will excite kid's imaginations and they will love to look though each world and see what they can find.

    7. I saw this come in at the library today and the cover drew me in automatically. This is the coolest book I've seen in a long time. It looks like they made all of the scenes with real food. I guess they did and to me that is freaking amazing. It's just.a really cool book, everyone should look at it!

    8. Fantastic, fascinating and hours of stare-worthy are a few things to describe this book. The imaginative and creative brain behind these pictures is beyond me and amazing to behold. Great for fun, great for colors and I Spy. This book is awesome. I'm in awe and cannot stop staring. *Thanks to Abrams*

    9. This is amazing. Lands made of food. Real food, sliced lemons, floating like inner tubes, pyramids made of Swiss cheese, candles made from corncobs, houses made from carved pumpkins, carrot trees, a locomotive totally made of chocolate cookies. Ohhhhh then there's abridge made of a sliced and well built cucumber.a hot air balloon of bananas? This is just too clever not to be missed!

    10. This book is SO COOL! Lots to explore in the pictures! The pictures are made with foods and each page is based on a different color. Loved, also, the poetic text on the pages that describe what the world would be like if it was purple, red, green, etc. I'd love to own this book because it would be one that kids would explore over and over.

    11. This book was so much fun! It was exciting to see the different colors food can come in, and the photography was really creative. Each color came with a little poem, and at the end the author provides an explanation to the different foods used in each picture.

    12. This book is so cute and clever. It teaches you about colors, candies, and veggies. Aster you read the book, the glossary has a key for each color that tells you what each thing was made up from. I highly recommend this book.

    13. Really interesting the way this book was done; each illustration was created only using food items. Similar to I-spy books, but the reader is trying to point out what food item was used to make that landscape or item.

    14. The food photographs are amazing! I think my favorite page was brown with its little chocolate bunny hanging out in the foreground. Not so sure about the raw meat mountains though, a little bit gross.

    15. Amazing illustrations! So much color! So much detail! My girls have spent a large amount of time studying the pages and pretending they lived in the various landscapes. Plus, a good message for picky eaters about how many wonderful and different foods there are to try is included in the text.

    16. The first picture book I've bought as an adult. The artwork is stunning, and the "story" is fun. Definitely one I could see myself using as a "picture book for older kids" selection - lots of alliteration!

    17. As I read this story I couldn't help become hungry with every turn of the page. The graphics are great and the storylinee is amazing as well, but I am partially biased because I love food. If you want to get up right away and make some food then read this book because it will make you super hungry.

    18. What a beautiful book. I want to first go to the chocolate world, then the fruits/vegetables world and last the pink world where there are lollipops, gum drops and all kinds of sugary sweets. As long as it was like Wonka's factory where I could eat it all, I would be very happy indeed.

    19. Audience: young childrenAppeal: both boys and girlsApplication: I could use this when teaching colors and what items are of that colorAwards: Golden Sower Award

    20. The art is so colorful, the words bring great imagery and fun that you could picture a great landscape event without the beautiful artwork!

    21. In my humble opinion, this is the best picture book ever. Whatever argument you have is invalid. The pictures are just so amazing anyone will simply love it!

    22. Liam loved this book. It is very creative in rhyming and how they have the food and colors. Very fun creative book.

    23. My 7 and 4 year old girls love this book! My 7 year old was so inspired she has spent hours drawing the pictures herself.

    24. If you like rich illustrations, this is a wonderful book. Taking you on a visual feast, this is a treat.Recommended for anyone and everyone, but especially those who love illustrations.

    25. Absolutely amazing and cleaver illustrations! I've never seen the creativity of food sculptures in a book to this level before. Very well done.
