PIC FIC: I Won’t Eat That by Christopher Silas Neal

December: Young Reader Pick

A funny and informative tale about a cat trying to find a meal, while discovering what his many animal friends are eating. – Robin

Cat has no idea what he wants — until it’s right in front of him.

Cat is very hungry. But cat food is dry and dull and not at all yummy. So what in the world should Cat eat instead? Turtle eats worms, but worms are too wiggly. Fox eats rabbits, but rabbits are too bouncy. What everyone else loves to eat is thoroughly unappetizing to Cat. Until, by chance, the thing Cat really wants to eat appears right in front of him. What could it be? Christopher Silas Neal’s retro-style illustrations and easy-to-follow story are the perfect match for even the pickiest eaters — and the patient souls that feed them.
