A wisecracking activity-story book about the short (shelf) life of a bunch of bruisers—with 7 yummy recipes to save families from "I'm bored" disease. While banana characters try crazy stunts and start turf wars, this cautionary cookbook provides easy, low-sugar recipes (including banana muffins, smoothies, cookies and pancakes—more recipes at Premiobooks.com). The story is fun and filled with conjunctions. The perfect family activity, Bad Bananas facilitates tasty, funny, hands-on fun (ages 4–12). Called "bizarrely funny" in Horn Book's blog, it's also an ebook. 24-page, perfect bound 8"x10", paper picture book with African-American character, 320 words (before recipes) by Karl Beckstrand, illustrated by Jeff Faerber, Premio Publishing & Gozo Books, LLC (worldwide rights 2011), available via Premiobooks.com (SEE INSIDE!
