Good, But Lacking Something

Any additional comments?

These are pretty good kids' stories; they're creative, funny, quirky, and relatable (in that kids love food). However, they lacked something that could have made them more creative. I think I disliked the bookends of realism; I disliked that Chewandswallow was merely a fantasy. Then again, the world of the Wild Things in Where The Wild Things Are is just as much a fantasy. Yet, it feels much more real than the fantasy land of these stories. I think most kids would enjoy them though. I just don't think they'll be the kinds of stories remembered vividly in later life.

Also, the male narrator was great, but the female narrator (especially in Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs) was really annoying.
