Picky eating is a common occurrence in many households, but this charming story turns this topic on its head as little Sam's refusal to eat changes a simple dinnertime meal into a hilarious display of silly parental antics! Laugh out loud as Sam's dad becomes an elephant, flies around the room like an airplane, and performs more daring tricks to try to get Sam to eat!

Open Wide! is a familiar picky eating story with a humourous and satisfying surprise ending. Includes a punch-out paper airplane that children can put on their spoons, just like Sam's!

Raves & reviews:

Praise for Open Wide!: "Burks nails Sam's glowers and frowns, as well as his parents' increasing frustration, which disappears once they discover that Sam just wants to take matters into his own hands." —Publishers Weekly
