Open wide—it's time to eat! Fussy babies may not be interested in food themselves, but they might want to share a spoonful with absolutely anyone else! There's a spoonful for Mommy, one for the fish, for the fly in the corner, even the lady in the picture. With bright, engaging illustrations, a die-cut open mouth to feed, and just enough silliness, this fun board book is bound to make dinner entertaining for your stubborn baby.  Hooray—you ate it all!

Benoît Marchon was born in 1950. He studied letters and art history before beginning his career in publishing for adults and children. He has created many books for children as a writer for Bayard in France.
