The Trouble with Cauliflower

Mortimer is superstitious. He likes the taste of cauliflower, but he seems to think that eating it will bring him bad luck! When his best friend, Sadie, serves him a stew that contains cauliflower, she explains that he should try it...and he does...with disastrous results. Mortimer is more convinced than ever that cauliflower is the culprit. Sadie stays with him, there to understand, to help, and to do something to change his luck. What will happen when she serves him a "secret surprise" stew containing you-know-what? Will bad luck follow? Will positive thinking change his luck?

You will love the animals...the hippo is hilarious...and the mouse is...where is that mouse?

The Trouble with Cauliflower is one of the funniest, best illustrated stories we have read in years! We believe Jim Harris should have won the Caldecott Medal for this book! Special thanks to this talented artist for allowing us to use some of his illustrations in our literature guide!
