Frances' parents have a problem. Whatever Mother serves, Frances wishes it was bread and jam and proclaims accordingly in rhyme. So one day Mother serves her just what she wants-bread and jam for every meal! Soon Frances is not quite as thrilled as she expected to be. A charming book of reverse childhood psychology which children will appreciate on one level and every parent who ever had a stubborn child to contend with will appreciate on quite a different level.
Cute color illustrations by Lillian Hoban add so much to this book.
