I bought a TV dinner
Then brought it home to heat it.
But no matter how I tried,
My TV wouldn’t eat it!

From Don't Play with Your Food
Hotdogs strut, fishes fret, and celery runs amok in this playful collection of food related poems for children (and adults with childlike tendencies.) From the perils of life in a salad bowl to spicy dances behind cupboard doors, Brian Rock and John Moerner lead a poetic and playfully picturesque romp through the secret life of food.
