We're thrilled to unveil our exciting January Middle Grade theme: "Picky Eaters Unite!" 🍟🍴
This month, we're featuring the hardcover edition of The League of Picky Eaters by Stephanie V.W. Lucianovic. Get ready for a hilarious and heartwarming journey into the world of picky eating, the quest to find your kindred spirits, and the art of standing tall and proud!
In the quirky town of Muffuletta, within the hallowed halls of St. Julia Child Elementary and Middle School, there's a unique hierarchy: your culinary prowess determines your social standing. Devouring French fries and grilled cheese? You're a novice! Savoring haggis and truffles? You're among the elite!
However, our protagonist, Minerva, faces a culinary crisis after failing a crucial school eating test. She's relegated to the lowest eating track: "Remedial Eating to Change Habits" (aka RETCH). This class is brimming with kids sporting peculiar personalities and even more peculiar food preferences. Adding to her woes, her once-close friends, who belong to the "Gifted and Gourmet" class, now shun her.
But amidst the chaos, Minerva discovers that she's not alone in her picky eating habits. She forges unexpected friendships with her new RETCH classmates. Together, they embark on a journey to assert themselves, proudly owning their picky palates.
Our January Middle Grade boxes are available now through January 4th (or until they sell out!). Expect your boxes to ship out in early January, delivering a delightful literary adventure that celebrates the spirit of picky eaters everywhere!
