Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs

This very book is everything that I have envisioned as a child. Food dropping from the sky like rain, isn't that wonderful? I often wonder what it would feel like walking on a peanut butter and jelly road. Slippery I guess. But hey, you don't have to worry about what you're going to eat and the hassles involving cooking because it'll simply just come down from the sky, regularly.

Such is the odd case in the town of Chewandswallow. Weather comes regularly in the form of food and beverages. It rains of soup and juice, snows are made up of mashed potatoes and blowing storms of hamburgers. Surely, people are served with different meals three times a day. But what would happen if giant pancakes falls down from the sky and it begins raining ketchup? Or if Chendswallow got covered with peanut butter and mayonaisse? These weather change had pushed the people to abandon their homes and with huge sandwiches as their boats, they searched for a new town that is normal and unlike the one they left behind. This has got to be one of those books on top of my list. What a gem!
