This is the perfect job for dogs! My dog would've loved the story, if she wasn't too occupied with eating her cheese stick lol.

A fun children's tale from author Kenneth Oppel of Silverwing fame, this book teaches kids about appreciating their food, not spoiling their appetites, and about food from around the world.

I hated this book because a dog kept running away from his friend which was sad because they were friends. Also this book wasn't exciting at all.

I loved this book because of the part when the chef's wish came true. The part I hated was when the king through pizza on the wall.
