This novelty book is the result of a SCBWI Illustrator's Day Conference prompt.
It's based on something that happened to me as a child: I brought in some Filipino food to school and a girl next to me started making barfing noises. I begged my mom to buy me Lunchables from then on.
I recently read about a Japanese-American mom who made sushi for her daughter's entire class so she could bring in homemade food without embarrassment. I combined both stories in my dummy, which if you are interested in seeing, send me an email at Chey@CheyDiehl.com
