No Mush Today

By Big A, little a

I’m always happy to receive a package from Lee & Low Books. They publish some of the most interesting and joyful children’s books around. Sally Derby’s No Mush Today, illustrated by Nicole Tadgell, is no exception. This story of a girl who just doesn’t want to eat mush for breakfast brings light and fun to a familiar domestic battle. . . . Sally Derby’s text is fast-paced and childlike, while Nicole Tadgell’s lovely, warm illustrations—with greens, blues, yellows, and browns at their heart—bring life to Derby’s minimalistic text.
