Bread and Jam for Frances

Russell Hoban. HarperCollins Publishers, $6.99 (31pp) ISBN 978-0-06-443096-8

Frances loves nothing better than jam and bread, and turns up her nose at other kinds of food. Then her mother starts giving Frances jam and bread for breakfast, lunch and dinner. ""What I am/is sick of Jam,'' Frances sings to herself. That's the end of Frances's jam-only days, as she discovers, in her own winsome way, that variety really is the spice of mealtimes. (4-8)
