            An energetic and entertaining story to entice fussy little eaters to look beyond boring beige foods and explore a whole new world of colourful food! 'Mum's in a bad mood. She's fed up with all the beige foods in the kitchen, like chicken nuggets, chips, pasta, crisps, cereal... s...o she's taking her children to the supermarket to play a game. But you can't play a game in the supermarket, can you? Yes you can!' This ingenious new book from Claire Potter, author of Getting the Little Blighters to Eat, helps to break down the fussy eating headache by turning trying new foods into a game, a method often used by paediatricians. Every day of the week we see two children go to the supermarket and pick food they would like to try - but there is a twist. The food must be a certain colour, chosen by their mum! On Monday, she tells them to choose three RED foods; on Tuesday, three YELLOW foods; on Wednesday, three GREEN foods... Which foods will they choose? And how will they eat them? There are so many to choose from... Which ones would YOU pick? And how would YOU eat them?

Fish highlights the issues with a simple and engaging illustrated narrative, and also suggests a solution in the form of recycling. All Finn wants is to catch a nice, tasty... fish for his dinner, but no matter how hard he tries all he seems to catch at the end of his fishing line is other people's trash. The longer he spends out on the ocean, the more crazy objects he collects! Finn and his dog Skip go home each day with a full boat, but empty tummies. It isn't long before Finn finds a way to reuse and recycle everything he has collected. Pretty soon he makes enough money to make a tasty dinner every day, and under his care the ocean becomes clean, bright, and full of fish again!

With clear directions and classroom tested strategies for supporting students' academic progress, Gibbons shows how the teaching of language can be integrated seamlessly with the teaching of content, and how academic achievement can be boosted without sacrificing our own vision of education to the dictates of knee-jerk accountability.
