Delicious!: Poems Celebrating Street Food Around the World

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Julie Paschkis. From "Market Breakfast: Oaxaca, Mexico" to "Train Station: Mumbai, India," short, sweet poems and tantalizing illustrations let readers sample delicacies from fourteen different locales. Each poem gets its own double-page spread: the text is framed by a decorative border on the recto; the whole spread is enveloped by Paschkis's kaleidoscopic paintings. A menu of the "Sweets and Treats" provides some more information about the different cultures and culinary traditions, including orange juice from Jaffa, Israel; "deep-fried scorpions on a stick" from Beijing, China; and Boston's Fenway Park hotdogs.
