The Marshmallow Incident by Judi Barrett
From the creator of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs comes Judi Barrett’s newest creation, The Marshmallow Incident, a book that will make you smile. Similar to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and Pickles To Pittsburgh, The Marshmallow Incident is another quirky tale where food flies through the sky and helps bond together a divided town. In the town of Left and the town of Right everyone must adhere to the rules and stay on their side of the dotted yellow line that divides the land. Lefties have never entered the world of the righties, and according to the Order of the Ambidextrous this is the way it must be. One day a brave man attempts to save some children from crossing the threshold and ends up falling across the line himself. The Knights who guard the border begin to defend it, catapulting hundreds of marshmallows over onto the side of the righties. In the midst of the skirmish the citizens from both the right and left begin to wonder why the divider existed in the first place. Wouldn’t sharing the marshmallows be more fun??
The Marshmallow Incident will interest children and adults alike with its unique story line and detailed illustrations.
Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs will premiere in motion picture September 18th of this year! There is no better time to become a Judi Barrett fan! 🙂
