Lillian Morrison's I Scream, You Scream: A Feast of Food Rhymes (illustrated by Nancy Dunaway, all ages) is full of poems plus tongue twisters, street cries, and mock blessings. Take this little book along the next time you're eating with a bunch of young middle-graders and the kids will chant: "What's cookin', good lookin'?/Whatcha mean, jelly bean?/Don't give me no lip, potato chip./Shut up, ketchup./I'm the boss, applesauce./It's your fault, garlic salt."
