Peanut Butter & Cupcake by Terry Border Book Review

Peanut Butter & Cupcake by Terry Border
Publisher: Philomel
Release Date: July 29, 2014

What’s a little piece of bread to do when he’s feeling lonely? Find a friend, of course! And that’s exactly what Peanut Butter tries to do. But sometimes friends are hard to come by.

Let's start with the obvious. Terry Borders' food art. A slice of bread walking around on little wire legs looking for a friend. How fun is that? Add in some cupcakes, hot dogs, hamburgers, eggs, and more and this story just screams to life. 

The story itself is simple, but perfect, full of food puns. This makes it, by nature, for the older picture book crowd, but so much fun to read. The rhyming poem schema demands completion and I found myself desperately wanting peanut butter to find his jelly. 

I have included a few of the more of the kid friendly Terry Border art, but you should definitely check out his website for more.
