How Are You Peeling? How Are You Peeling?

Written & Illustrated by Saxton Freymann

The author/illustrators of the best-selling Play With Your Food and Play With Your Pumpkin launch an exciting program of books for children and their adult friends with this farm-fresh delicacy.

Feeling happy? Hopeful? Overjoyed? Or maybe you’re angry today? Or just a little anxious? Whatever your mood, you’re bound to feel forty eight times as good after looking at this astounding new picture book. On each page, laid out in signature, crisp style, are wild food sculptures, that embody each emotion more fluidly and expressively than any human face could. The text is simple and funny, designed to start a conversation between adult and child about feelings – call it eggplant empathy, call it laughing at limes.

Join the legions of families who’ve already learned the delights of this pantry gone mad, and hailed Saxton Freymann as the Picasso of Pumpkins, the Rodin of Rutabagas, the Calder of Cabbages.

So sit with a child and read this book. It’s good for you.



REVIEWS:

“Saxton Freymann and Joost Elffers have created sweet and feisty little beings with feelings, passions, fears, and an emotional range that is…organic…The easygoing, conversational text is reassuring and upbeat about social encounter for the very young…As a book about feelings, a kitchen-witchery tour de force or a spur to crafts action on your own or with you kids, How Are You Peeling? is charming, friendly, instructive and, of course, appealing (spell it how you will).” -- The New York Times Book Review

“An eye-catching and enormously appealing book…Accompanied by simple rhymes, the attractive photographs burst with color. Use this book to discuss different moods, to introduce the names of many fruits and vegetables, to identify colors, and to inspire young artists to create sculptures of their own.” -- School Library Journal, starred review

“Kids will find the inherent silliness irresistible and be drawn in by the book's visual appeal: the colors are strong, the photography is excellent, and the expressions, derived from the natural lumps and bumps of the fruits and vegetables (enhanced by a few incisions), are surprisingly masterful.” -- Booklist

“Children and their keepers will be astonished to discover how closely the wrinkles, bends, and creases in produce can mimic human feelings… Fun, and useful: what child would not be encouraged to talk about being shy when there is a cantaloupe that admits to exactly the same thing?” -- Kirkus Reviews
