Yuck. A cheese and ham sandwich for lunch is way too boring. As young Zak stares at his plate, he grumbles. If only he had his own restaurant, he could eat anything he wanted. But wishes can come true in astonishing ways. In a flash, Zak is at a shining lunch counter. Under bright lights, a frizzy-haired waitress named Lou waits to take his order. With a grin as big as his appetite, Zak doesn’t waste any time: double cheeseburgers, french fries, pizzas, pies. Join the adventurous Zak as he feasts his way through a meal that gets bigger with every bite. Margie Palatini is the author of several popular picture books, and in Zak’s Lunch she captures every child’s food fantasy. Narrator Jeff Woodman adds just the right flavor to her rib-tickling tale.

    " Fantastic story of a boy avoiding his ham and cheese sandwich. Girls loved it. His imagination had no bounds when it comes to the food at the diner in his dreams. Borders at times on icky. Maybe that is why it's Zak's lunch instead of Zelda's. "

    " Love! Love! Love this book! I use this book to help me teach desccriptive languge in writing. The author does such a wonderful job describing Zak's Place: the imagined restaurant. The waitress, the dog, and all of the wonderful food make this a favorite of my students! "

    " Another fun book for my students and me. We've been practicing our reading comprehension strategies with the Margie Palatini books and having a good time doing so. "

    " Mommy says: Margie Palatini has written a few funny, clever, fun-to-read-aloud books, but this is not one of them. In the majority of her stories, she overdoes it with the annoying alliteration, and it distracts from the story. The kids don't like it any more than I do. "
