In The Seven Silly Eaters by Mary Ann Hoberman, Peter likes milk, Lucy wants lemonade, and Jack’s favorite food is applesauce. As new children are born, Mrs. Peters gets more requests for special food. Her seven Peters are picky eaters! Mrs. Peters does everything she can to keep everyone happy, but the day before her birthday she is exhausted from cooking for her crew. That night the children get together to whip up a meal for their mother, but it doesn’t turn out quite how they thought. The hilarious surprise they cook up makes their mother feel celebrated, and it satisfies all seven of the picky eaters!
