Melinda Taliancich Falgoust's Lousy Liver is a delightful tale about having something on one's dinner plate that you would not expect. Charlie, who is very hungry indeed after having a nice bath, expected pizza or a nice juicy hamburger, but instead he got liver! Brown liver, looking sappily up at him! He tries to dream up all sorts of ideas to get him out of eating the liver, like changing into a dragon or a giraffe, but there was always something that changed his mind. Poor Charlie, he does his best to think up ideas of why NOT to eat the liver! But as his mother points out, he didn't need to be anything or anyone else, not even a small mouse or a magician, to get rid of the liver. He could just be Charlie and try the liver.

We all know how difficult it is to feed our children. They have all sorts of food fads, and of course, they do love pizza and chips. Melinda Taliancich Falgoust's Lousy Liver is a fun and well-written book, with a rhyming touch of "Dr Seuss" magic to make children laugh and want to read the book over and over again. The beautiful illustrations by the author herself scream out fun and frolic, making the book a pure delight for young and old. Books about food, especially the ones that teach a child to try all foods, are great.
