Review

Gregory the Terrible Eater by Mitchell Sharmat has always been one of my favorite children’s picture books. I love the fact that Gregory knows what he wants and isn’t afraid to ask for it, but he doesn’t throw tantrums about it.

I love the fact that when they go to the doctor, he suggests a compromise instead of just berating Gregory. The compromise works well and Gregory gets his pasta and vegetables with little things like shoelaces thrown in.

This book is very well written. The prose flows along well and the illustrations are crisp and colorful. All in all it’s just a fabulous book. I highly recommend it to children and adults alike.
