about

One night Wilma Lee Wu sits down for dinner—in front of some food that might’ve been meat—when she declares she can’t take it: “Please, no more beige food!” She’s tired of the bland and mushy meals her parents make. So Wilma and her little brother venture in search of some neighbors willing to teach them how to cook new food. From Khun Joe’s pad thai to Ms. Azar’s Lebanese kibbe, they learn to make all sorts of tasty dishes. But how will Wilma respond when Monsieur Poutine offers to teach her how to make frog legs?

The sequel to The Change Your Name Store, No More Beige Food will delight both old fans of Wilma Lee Wu and new readers. Both adults and children will love this clever, rhyming tale—it might even get some picky eaters curious about going on their own culinary adventures! Tina Kügler’s charming and lively illustrations give great personalities to an array of characters from around the world; this is the perfect book for parents looking to talk about diversity with young children.
