Staff Reviews

"If you don't love bacon, then this book is NOT for you. Put it down right now! But if you do happen to love it (and we're pretty sure you do), then this hilarious diner story is right up your alley. Just don't tell Bacon how MUCH you love him. All this adoration is going straight to his head--just ask French Toast (eye roll)."

— Meghan


Egg loves Bacon.
Lettuce loves Bacon.
Waffle loves Bacon.
Bacon is sizzling with popularity.
And pretty much everyone thinks he is the best.

That is-until Bacon's fame goes to his head. He's so busy soaking up the attention, that he soon forgets the important things in life, like friendship and family. How will it all pan out for our dashing, delicious hero?

Praise For…

“Retro art meets wry humor in this very funny tale of hubris set in a diner. Throughout, Wight's expressive illustrations meet DiPucchio's text at every humorous turn as they define the foodstuffs-er, characters with cartoonish panache. A bacon book so funny that perhaps even some vegetarians will love it.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“DiPucchio and Wight...tell a comically cautionary story that's worthy of Behind the Music. DiPucchio's short, direct text provides just the right setup for Wight's boisterous, spoofy drawings and egomaniacal star. His bright-eyed anthropomorphism and visual nudges should remind many readers of Veggie Tales at its most supremely silly.” —Publishers Weekly

“This story follows the current craze for bacon and imagines Bacon, the character, as a type of matinee idol. Everything has a bright, mid-century, nostalgic look. The various food characters are distinct identities, which are brought to life through the illustrations. Kids will appreciate the clever tone. Many...will want this Bacon on the menu.” —School Library Journal
