  • I Only Like What I Like

    Julie Baer

    Hardcover (Bollix Books, Aug. 1, 2003)
    His full name is Dewey Jackson Braintree-Berg and he only likes what he likes. He only likes one certain black and white cat. He only likes an apple if it's red. And he only likes one particular yellow and white house. You'd think that a boy with such set likes and dislikes would hardly ever have any fun, wouldn't you? So on Monday, when Dewey, who will only eat noodles shaped like letters is invited for dinner and sits facing a bowl of squiggly green macaroni, what can he do?? And what are those wriggly green squiggles anyway?
