Word Count: 800 (estimate)
Besides making me very hungry when I read it, A World of Food kept me turning the pages wanting more. The food, the colors, the illustrations - all phenomenal!
The book is written in poetic form with stanza in a ABCB pattern.
If all the world were yellow,
A desert it would be
Of couscous, rice, and yellow beans
As far as you could see.
Warner also uses a variety of Word Play in the book. For example, internal rhyme...
In the mellow yellow shade.
Beneath a lamp of cinnamon sticks
And silent starry skies
This book begs to be read aloud...but it also wants the reader to get lost in its beautiful pictures. ENJOY!
