Editorial Reviews

Burp! The most interesting book you'll ever read about eating is for children who can read well and digest, so to speak, considerable amounts of material. To sugar the medicine, basic facts are accompanied by stories worthy of Ripley's Believe It or Not. Though Rose Cowles's illustrations are of the Simpsons school of esthetics, they are nevertheless informative and entertaining.-The National Post
