The Worst Breakfast

In The Worst Breakfast, written by China Miéville and illustrated by Zak Smith, a girl describes the most horrible breakfast ever endured to her younger sister. She can't believe her sister doesn't remember all the grotesque elements of the terrible meal they shared! She tries to jog her memory by rattling off each unpleasant food and its faults. Illustrator Zak Smith brings the rhyming story to life with his wonderfully strange and intricate art. The pictures in this book amazed me. I think that kids would like this book but adults especially will admire each image. My favorite illustration depicts a blue tea kettle overflowing with sugar cubes.

This book is worth borrowing for the illustrations alone. To put it simply, it's really cool and I think you'll like it.
