Overview

In this charming sequel to the classic Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, Kate and Henry eagerly await Grandpa's return from a vacation that his postcard says has been one of the best and most unusual ever. Thinking about that postcard Kate drifts off to sleep that night and...

"With Henry as my co-pilot..." she visits the strange land of Chewandswallow — a land characterized by massive amounts of food, immense carrots, leafy jungles of lettuce, and tuna fish sandwiches so gigantic they have to be moved by helicopter. What the people of Chewandswallow are doing with all that food is most intriguing of all. Fans of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs will applaud this return trip with its underlying message of generosity and a world community.

This book is an excellent following to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. After reading that particular book to my grandson and seeing his reaction, I looked for more books by this author. This was recommended. He was excited to see the return of characters and another silly story. I would definitely recommend both books for a grandparent to read to a grandchild.

My 6 and 10 year old can not get enough of this book! They are asking for it to be read again and again and they are fairly discerning in their tastes. They peruse each page for clues about Grandpa's trip to see if he was, in fact, visiting Chewandswallow. We HIGHLY recommend it!!

My kids love this book! It is a sequel to Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs -- which they love also. Great for kindergarten through third grade!

Part of this story is how the town of Chewandswallow, which experiences storms of falling food, has learned to channel this phenomenon into a way of feeding the hungry around the world. It's an excellent message packaged in an entertaining and funny story.

Primary or IntermediateGenre: Fantasy- Food comes raining down from the skies and it is being transported to places that need food. This is not realistic at all: Food can't fall from the sky.Point of View: This is written in first person from the granddaughter. She has a dream about this place which ends up being very real.

This book is a good follow-up to "Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs," but it's not quite as good. It's entertaining and paints a vivid picture of the land that Kate and Henry travel to, complete with every delicious detail. In the classroom setting this story can be used to teach kids about different types of food or spark a conversation about what are some fun dreams the students have had.

Age: IntermediateMedia: Ink and WatercolorThe genre of this book is fantasy. It is a fantasy book because even though it is a dream, the majority of the book is unrealistic because of all of the gigantic food.
GeniusBabies on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
An inferior book to the original, this tale revisits Chewandswallow to see people delivering giant food all over the world. The book is slow to start, and is basically just a lot of visual gags/scenes with large food.
