Description - Jasper McFlea Will Not Eat His Tea by Lee Fox

Jasper and Ginger McFlea are twin brother and sister with wildly different tastes when it comes to food. While Ginger has a hearty appetite and eats almost everything, her brother Jasper refuses to eat anything except pasta. Jasper is also a budding cricketer and as the final match of the season gets closer, Ginger makes a dire prediction about Jasper s sporting future if he doesn t change his culinary ways. When he is taken for a medical check-up, Doctor McTavish diagnoses that Jasper suffers from a boring diet. Doctor McTavish then lets Jasper in on a simple yet little-known secret he doesn t have to eat his food, just taste it! From that moment on Jasper is transformed and, like his twin sister Ginger, develops a taste for a wide variety of healthy and nutritious food. And not only that, his game improves too! As well as being a hilariously entertaining read-out-loud story, Jasper McFlea will not Eat His Tea looks at the topic of food avoidance, a common and challenging childhood issue, which many children and their parents deal with all day, every day.

Book Review: Jasper McFlea Will Not Eat His Tea by Lee Fox - Reviewed by (16 Jan 2012)

This is the perfect book for the fussy toddler which (in perfect rhyme of course) explains why it is important to eat a healthy and well balanced diet. It is easily adapted to include your child's name and the name's of their siblings and doctor and with some persuasion you might even convince your fussy toddler to at least taste everything on their plate rather than exclaiming "it's yucky!" or it "looks just like spew!".

This duo have written and illustrated similar stories in the same amusing rhyme (about kids who refuse to brush hair and kids who refuse to brush teeth or refuse to go to sleep) but for me this is the best of the bunch!


Author Biography - Lee Fox

Lee Fox grew up in the Melbourne suburb of Footscray. She has been a production assistant for a commercial radio station, a Mormon, a cook in a childcare centre and a store manager on a remote Aboriginal community - not necessarily in that order. A mother of five children, Lee's writing career began in 2005 with several articles published in THE AGE. Lee lives by the ocean and reads daily to her beloved grandchildren. Lee lives in Castlemaine, Victoria, and shares a beautiful garden and rambling farmyard with her partner and the youngest of her five children. Mitch Vane grew up in an artistic household, and since completing a Graphic Art course at RMIT she has been working as a freelance illustrator for the last twenty years - five of which she spent working in London and backpacking around Europe between jobs. Mitch loves illustrating children's books, and is also interested in most forms of visual storytelling - cartoons, book covers packaging, design, and editorial illustrations. She works with a variety of mediums, including acrylic paint and watercolour, but is at her happiest with a good old-fashioned dip pen and Indian ink. Mitch's partner Danny Katz is a writer and they both work from home, sometimes working on books together. They have just completed their fourth book in the Little Lunch series, and her cartoons appear every week with Danny's column in the Age newspaper. They have a twelve-year-old daughter, Talia, and an eight year old son, Jordie, who have been a constant source of inspiration to them both.
