Once there was a poor girl who had no mama and no papa and nothing at all, not even a name.
But then one day an Ogre comes knocking at the town’s gate, threatening to ravage the town unless the townspeople give him one of their fair maidens. Of course they pick this poor girl to be sacrificed. They dress her in a gown and a paper crown, put her in a sack, and leave her for the Ogre. But this brave and clever girl manages to outwit the Ogre and all the townspeople, too, earning a purse full of gold, a fine sharp sword, and most important, a fitting name for herself: Good-Enough-to-Eat.
This satisfying story has the feel of a classic fairy tale, brought to life by Brock Cole’s expressive watercolors.
Good Enough To Eat is a 2008 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
