Okay, technically this picture book is about a cheeseburger, not a hamburger, but a cheeseburger is a hamburger with cheese, so close enough, right? Now that that’s settled, I can introduce you to a humorous and heartwarming story about a raccoon and a seed that he hopes will grow cheeseburgers:
One night, while Grub is rummaging through the trash looking for something to eat, he meets Seed. Seed is waiting for someone to plant him so he can start growing. Grub hopes Seed will grow “something very good and very special”—cheeseburgers! So, Grub plants Seed and they both wait. Wait to see what will happen. Though I guessed Grub might not get what he hoped for, I kept turning the pages to find out how the book would end, and the ending did not disappoint! Monica Arnaldo’s clever story of growth and friendship is full of humor and heart, a surprising yet inevitable ending, charming illustrations, and dreams of cheeseburgers! I think you’ll love ARE YOU A CHEESEBURGER? as much as I did.
