About the Author

Kelly DiPucchio likes her bacon well-done, served with two eggs over easy and a side of rye toast. She is an award-winning author of several children's books, including the New York Times bestsellers Grace for President and The Sandwich Swap. She lives with her husband and three children in southeastern Michigan.

Eric Wight will eat just about anything with bacon in it. One of his favorites is maple walnut bacon ice cream. He is the illustrator of the Magic Shop series. Everyone Loves Bacon is his first picture book. He lives in Bucks County, Pennsylvania with his bacon-loving wife and children.

Reviews

"Retro art meets wry humor in this very funny tale of hubris set in a diner. Throughout, Wight's expressive illustrations meet DiPucchio's text at every humorous turn as they define the foodstuffs-er, characters with cartoonish panache. A bacon book so funny that perhaps even some vegetarians will love it." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"DiPucchio and Wight...tell a comically cautionary story that's worthy of Behind the Music. DiPucchio's short, direct text provides just the right setup for Wight's boisterous, spoofy drawings and egomaniacal star. His bright-eyed anthropomorphism and visual nudges should remind many readers of Veggie Tales at its most supremely silly." --Publishers Weekly

"This story follows the current craze for bacon and imagines Bacon, the character, as a type of matinee idol. Everything has a bright, mid-century, nostalgic look. The various food characters are distinct identities, which are brought to life through the illustrations. Kids will appreciate the clever tone. Many...will want this Bacon on the menu." --School Library Journal
