Coming April 2023!
Six-year-old Sam, with his Liberian dad and African American mom, finds a way to bring everyone in his cross-cultural family together at the dinner table
Rice and okra soup: Sam's auntie from Liberia made it, and it's Dad's favorite. Mom, homegrown in Minnesota, made spaghetti and meatballs. And Sam? He's just hungry, but no matter what he chooses to eat, someone will be disappointed. Caught in the middle of his family's African and American food fight, Sam gets a little help from his grumbling stomach--and readers of this seriously funny book by Shannon Gibney get a peek at cultures colliding in a family kitchen that work out in a very delicious way. Charly Palmer's vibrant and captivating illustrations make this gentle lesson in getting along a bright and colorful visual feast as well.
Cassava leaf torbogee or homemade sausage pizza? Sam's family recipes bring Sam and the Incredible African and American Food Fight to an apt and happy ending--and readers can decide which dinner is best. But, really, why not both?
