Pleased to announce that a story, close to eighty years in the making, is finally being released and shared with the world.
While World War II is changing the world in major ways, a young boy named Roger finds himself in a different kind of fight—a battle within himself—as he tries to muster up the courage to sample a bite of cheesecake. Yes, that’s right, cheesecake. You see, Roger can't understand how cheese, regularly eaten in his favorite grilled sandwiches, could possibly taste good in cake. He is quite disturbed that others not only find this oddity acceptable but also say it’s delicious.
The Little Boy Who Wouldn’t Eat Cheesecake inspires picky eaters and young readers, ages 4-9, to try new things and encourages conversation with older family members and friends about foods they didn't like in childhood (or, at least, thought they didn’t like) and what happened when they actually tried the foods for themselves.
A timely book about a preconceived notion being challenged and overcome
before it’s too late.
"Reading this story led us to a special conversation with our Poppa about the art of storytelling and enjoying his stories over and over again just as the characters in The Little Boy Who Wouldn't Eat Cheesecake. The way the author infused the lesson of trying new things before it's too late is beautifully written. You're sure to enjoy this delightful book!"
"The Little Boy Who Wouldn't Eat Cheesecake is a delightful and colorful story set in the 1940's of a boy who detests the idea of eating cheesecake. He soon discovers it’s okay to try new things. As you read this whimsical tale you will immediately make connections with the characters. Perfect as a read aloud for young children during bedtime or can be treasured as a favorite reader for older children."
