Who Fed Zed? Who knew there were so many words that rhyme with “Bread”? I loved this fast-paced, comical, rhyming picture book from Amelia McInerney. The award-winning author tickled my funny bone with a tale about a group of friends who unknowingly feed pet goldfish Zed some bread – ending in his near demise due to a food allergy! Although the serious message of the book is to raise awareness of food intolerances and food labelling, it is framed within a funny story that will assist children in the basic understanding of why we need to read labels carefully. (Do not feed fish flea powder...!) The story highlights how food can affect people, and indeed animals, differently. It is an easy read aloud that will have young children joining in with a giggle whilst repeating the mono-rhyming words. The illustrations by Adam Nickel are bright, colourful and simple - almost reminiscent of a fifties style American family comic. This book is sure to be a hit with parents, teachers and children!​
