A is for artichokes and long spears of asparagus. It's for bright, creamy avocados and salty little anchovies ...

From apple pie to zeppole, and everything in between, Artichoke to Zucchini introduces young readers to fruit, vegetables, and dishes from around the globe. Full of tasty favourites and delicious new discoveries, it's sure to lead to inspiration in the kitchen!

Following from the award-winning Off to The Market, acclaimed artist Alice Oehr takes you on a mouth-watering trip through the alphabet and around the world.

'If you're looking for an A-Z book with a twist, Alice Oehr's Artichoke to Zucchini is it. From ubiquitous bananas to the Japanese fruit umeboshi, this delightful picture book is perfect for growing little foodies aged 2-6 ... The pages are varied and kept interesting thanks to a range of descriptors with different qualities (sweet, sour, tangy, large, small, bold, delicate), and Oehr's illustrations burst off the page with freshness and colour. The foods are depicted with clear, bold outlines and filled with striking colours and textural details that bring them to life. Their simplicity and elegance are reminiscent of Leo Lionni's classic books, such as A Color of His Own, and could provide great drawing inspiration to slightly older kids. The text is gushing but fluid, full of palpable excitement for the possibilities of food. Artichoke to Zucchini is an elevated yet accessible addition to a child's library, perfect to read aloud and come back to again and again.'
