Please greet author Josh Funk with a fun and amusing anthropomorphic food book list! I’m a stop on his blog tour for his fourth Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast Picture book, In a nutshell.
I think these picture books are both smart and funny.
I also appreciate a good rhyming picture book and Josh Funk never disappoints! In fact, I learned a lot about writing rhyming picture books in a free workshop he gave The writer’s loft.

Thank you for joining the Short & Sweet Tour, Pragmatic Mom! I am so excited to have some of my favorite anthropomorphic food picture books in honor of the publication of the fourth book in the Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast Series.
In this new adventure, Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast find they are stale and visit Professor
Biscotti who has a destructive jet. Unfortunately, the pillage beam works a little too well and turns Lady
Pancake and Sir French Toast turn into … TODDLERS! Of course, chaos ensues and they must be rescued by their new friend (old enemy), Baron von Waffle.
And without further ado, here are my top 8 anthropomorphic food picture books.
Top 8 picture books with anthropomorphic foods
1. The big pasta escaped by Miranda Paul and illustrated by Javier Joaquín…
… is a fast-paced, funny story (and one my three-year-old niece memorized). After realizing that the intended purpose of noodles is to be FOOD, every type of noodle imaginable joins an insane onslaught in an effort to escape its nasty fate. [picture book, ages 3 and up]
2. P.ar-tay! Dance of vegetables (and their friends) by Eloise Greenfield and illustrated by Don Tate …
… is veggie-friendly. Not only is it about the healthiest foods, it’s impressively illustrated and very informative. [picture book, ages 3 and up]
is as great as it gets. And even better, it gets to the bottom of the age-old question: Are tomatoes fruit? And why? [picture book, ages 5 and up]
4th Red, the cutest in the world by Ben Clanton
… is it a beauty contest (or a cute contest?). Can red, a mutated potato, a rabbit, a kitten and a jellyfish beat? I think we all know the answer. [picture book, ages 4 and up]
5. You are my cupcake by Joyce Wan …
… is without a doubt the cutest book on this list (sorry, red). Read from book to child, this book compares (and illustrates) every sweet food you could ever call your little loved one. [picture book, ages 0 and up]
6th Potato pants! by Laurie Keller …
… is pretty much what the title describes. It’s about a potato looking for the right pair of pants – only to find her nemesis (an eggplant) standing in his way. Potato versus Eggplant. Who will win? And does it even matter? There are potatoes with pants! [picture book, ages 4 and up]
7th The gingerbread man loose in school by Laura Murray, illustrated by Mike Lowery …
is not only a book about anthropomorphic food but also a broken fairy tale. And it’s the first in a series of books about this wild character. You’ll want to eat, read them all! [picture book, ages 5 and up]
8th. Little pea by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, illustrated by Jen Corace …
… Teaches the twisted lesson that if peas don’t eat all of their sweets, they won’t get their vegetables for dessert. All of the Amy Krouse Rosenthal books are great, and this little series with Jen Corace is full of charm. Good Appetite! [picture book, ages 2 and up]
