A Moose Boosh: A Few Choice Words About Food

In more than 40 exuberant poems and "vandalized" photographs, you'll meet a city kid who fantasizes about farming on a stoop, a girl with crumpets and crepes in her head, and a boy with a pet cabbage. "Doctor Food" prescribes good food as medicine and "Dancing Kitchen" will have you shimmying with your skillet. From the amuse-bouche to the very last pea on the plate, A Moose Boosh celebrates food—growing it, making it, slurping it, and especially sharing it with loved ones at the dinner table. Bon appetit! Poetry is food for the soul, food is poetry for the tongue.
