Luck of the Loch Ness Monster: A Tale of Picky Eating

Parents are always trying to find ways to tell picky eaters to eat properly or they might suffer the consequences of an unhealthy life. Little Katerina-Elizabeth creates her own unique calamity when she repeatedly tosses her oatmeal from her boat onto the waters of the fabled Loch Ness Monster. What starts as a little problem becomes a monstrous headache of grand proportions as told by Alice Weaver Flaherty and illustrated by raising star Scott Magoon. Beware all little kids who toss their food, trouble lurks for you in the deep waters of the Loch.

Once upon a time, on a long, slow trip to Scotland, a little girl named Katerina-Elizabeth tossed her oatmeal overboard-again, and again, and again. She was a picky eater, and oatmeal was her least favorite food. And once upon a time, a small worm, no bigger than a piece of thread, swam alongside an ocean liner bound for Scotland and ate bowl after bowl of tossed oatmeal. He had never tasted anything as wonderful as oatmeal in his whole life. A. W. Flaherty and Scott Magoon unravel the Loch Ness legend in this whimsical picture book for the picky (and not-so-picky) eater in all of us.
