Amy Stuart, author of Still Mine
“This is a great book, full of engaging illustrations and a story line that pulls in the reader as every day, ordinary foods suddenly become animated and full of personality.My feelings about French fries, hamburgers and ketchup will never be the same again!”
Robin Gregory, Ph.D., author of Popcorn Queen and Bubble Man Have a Leisurely Day
“...[A FUN FOOD FRIENDS ADVENTURES: One Bad Fry Spoils the Bunch]
is amusing, with an exciting story of danger averted through cooperation, planning, and daring. Joelle’s illustrations are dynamic, colorful, and expressive, helping to tell the story.”
“This lighthearted and brightly illustrated story brings a strong message of the importance of those we accompany. This otherwise sweet and happy Fun Food Land has been brought to an unsavoury situation. It seems a new guy, a real rotten potato, has come to town. Joining a pack of fries, he slowly spoils the whole bunch. This first story of the series, A Fun Food Friends Adventure is a cute presentation of a major life lesson.”

"Such a unique and charming book. Angela Joelle’s wondrously simple drawings bring the book’s fantasy food characters to life as true kids’-world- imaginings. This story can’t help but enchant every child who uses his or her sense of magic to bring things to life and then makes adventures for their marshmallows, cupcakes and burgers."
