Stupid Carrots


Stupid Carrots– by David Campbell and Daron Parton (Scholastic Press) PB RRP $17.99 ISBN: 9781760970024

Reviewed by Jeffery E Doherty

Stupid Carrots is a picture book with a theme every parent can relate to -- having a child who is a fussy eater. From end page to end page, this book is beautifully designed. The colour palette is appealing, and the illustrations are clean and simple with no fussy backgrounds. The text and illustration both work to enhance the other in this delightful picture book.

Betty is a young rabbit who has decided that carrots are stupid, and she does not like them, and she will not eat them. Her attempts at convincing her parents of this fact are amusingly flawed and absolutely typical of my own children’s attempts to avoid food they had never tried but were still convinced they hated.

Stupid Carrots is a book that can be enjoyed by parents and children alike. The entire team who put this book together have done a wonderful job. I definitely recommend it for preschool and school-aged children. It is a fun attention grabber, sure to leave them laughing.
