In this story, readers get to visit local farmers, fill baskets with fresh fruits and vegetables, and then head home to cook a feast, all with goodies from the farmers' market! Featuring Stefan Page's graphic art, this delightful ebook is filled with bold splashes of color and unique patterns. Plus, this is a fixed-format version of the book, which looks nearly identical to the print version.
Illustrator Page debuts with a board book that sings the praises of visiting the farmers' market and the cooking done afterward. With its vivid palette, contrasting colors, and geometric designs, Page's artwork feels cousin to that of Patrick Hruby; he focuses on the food the only human faces belong to a few solemn vendors (not the most welcoming crowd). Still, the enthusiastic verse ("To table, to table, it is time to dig in!") and bold imagery may pique the appetites of budding gourmands. A farmers' market themed mobile and flashcard set featuring Page's artwork are also available. Up to age 2.
