Showdown at the Food Pyramid

Rex Barron, Author, Rex Barron, Illustrator Putnam Publishing Group $16.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-399-23715-7
Rex Barron plays with the facts in Showdown at the Food Pyramid, which interprets the old USDA ""food pyramid"" literally, imagining that dancing foodstuffs inhabit a four-story tower. Trouble begins when King Candy Bar stages an overthrow. Only when it ""collapse[s] under its own weight,"" can the rightful inhabitants return. Barron makes puns of food names like Bing Cherry and Granny Smith, and pictures tiki-head bread loaves supporting the pyramid. .
