Wild Man Jack isn’t easy to please. Especially when Mama Jane serves him the one dish that he detests. Each day his children ask what he’ll do if it arrives at the table, and each day he comes up with an even more colorful response. Not until Friday do things get really out of hand.
Philip Christian Stead’s call and response text and intricate collage art bring food and phobia to an entirely new level of hilarity in this sensational book for reading aloud.
“Its wry humor and illustrations worthy of a Roald Dahl creation make it worth a close look.” —School Library Journal
“This homage to Americana finds success looking backward, proudly reclaiming the rhythms of old stories and craftsmanship not so common in the digital age.” —Kirkus Reviews
