About the Author

Eric-Shabazz Larkin didn't discover he had a graffiti artist inside of him until he drew the city skyline on the wall of his childhood home in Virginia. He made his picture-book illustration debut with Farmer Will Allen and the Growing Table, an American Library Association Notable Book. A Moose Boosh marks his author-illustrator debut. He lives in New York City.


- 2015 American Library Association Notable Children's Book

"Very funny book."
--Michael Pollan, author, Omnivore's Dilemma, In Defense of Food, Food Rules

"Readers and eaters are taken on a comical romp through the world of food using poetry and a visual feast of photographs enhanced with playful doodles."
-- 2015 American Library Association Notable Children's Book

"Varied in style and tone -- much like food itself -- the witty, quirky poems take on many different topics . . . This is a charming and original book that should start some quality conversation about food."
--School Library Journal

"In 40-plus energetic poems, Larkin celebrates the good and decries the bad in the food world. Though individual poems might seem like amuse-bouches by themselves, they add up to a full meal, and the volume as a whole serves up a lively conversation about food... [T]he overall effect of the poetry and the mixed-media, graffiti-style art (inspired by Jean-Michel Basquiat) is exuberant: "Where there is food, there will be laughter (and crumbs)." A kid-friendly companion to Michael Pollan's Food Rules."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Larkin assembles more than 40 food-themed poems that range from the political to the personal, pairing them with photographs that have digital doodles superimposed on them. Several poems take aim at urban food deserts, fast food, or modified food... But Larkin doesn't ignore the sillier or joyful side of food...and his sometimes whimsical, sometimes provocative artwork gives the poems added dimension and depth."
--Publishers Weekly

"What to talk about at the dinner table? Why how to eat Slippery Noodles, of course!
Twirl them, whirl them, slop them, slip them,
twist them, curl them, whip them, flip them,
sip them, slurp them, chew them, beat them.
But you must use your fork, when you eat them."
