If food dropped like rain from the sky, wouldn't it be marvelous! Or would it? It could, after all, be messy. And you'd have no choice. What if you didn't like what fell? Or what if too much came? Have you ever thought of what it might be like to be squashed flat by a pancake?

"My daughter came home all excited about reading this book in school today. My son then chimed in and I soon had two children dancing around my kitchen telling me all about this book and laughing hysterically. I supposed I should read it myself before I recommend it, but my children definately gave it "two thumbs up"!"

"Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is such a fun and creative story. I characterize this book as fantasy/science fiction for both primary and intermediate ages. This story is about the town Chewandswallow and how it "pours" or "clears up" food. Everyday breakfast, lunch, and dinner fall from the sky due to technological advances discovered by a young boy. The town gets more than they bargained for when it is being covered by huge amounts of food. The genre science fiction aims to make the reader wonder what could really happen as a result of technology and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs did that for me! I think Judi Barrett did a great job writing this book. Everything is so descriptive and exciting! This book appeals to children because it is the story of an event that could never actually happen. The illustrations are very detailed, making it easy to picture this chaos. This would be a good book to start a science lesson dealing with weather because of all the excellent weather techniques demonstrated. "
