Title: Badger’s Fancy Meal

Author: Keiko Kasza

Illustrator: Keiko Kasza

Publisher: G P Putnam’s Sons

Ages 4-8


“Badger’s den was full of food, but he was not happy. ‘Apples, worms and roots…same old, same old,’ he sighed. ‘I wish I could have a fancy meal for a change.'”




Poor Badger has all the food he can possible want but it isn’t enough. He wants more. He wants a fancy meal and he goes on an adventure to find it. At first Badger thinks Mole, Rat, and Rabbit will make a delicious meal. When each gets away from him, Badger decides to return home but boy, is he in for a big surprise!


Why you should read it:


Ms. Kasza is both author and illustrator in this delightful story that children of all ages will love! I was captivated by the “turned-down” pages artwork which allowed me to peek into another part of the story and kept me fully engaged until the very end.
