Anna and Grace are sisters who can’t wait to be older and taller. An aging tycoon sees his breakfast cereal empire taken over by a clueless competitor. But when the recipe for the famous Freddibles cereal gets a botched makeover, there are strange results for all concerned. Two hungry girls, a midnight feast and a breakfast cereal designed to make folks smaller...what could possibly go wrong? More
If you read only one book this year about tainted breakfast cereal and a short-sighted talking frog then make sure it’s The Incredibly Edible Shrinking Freddibles.
This is the quirky debut children’s book from Irish writer Jim Hernan which kicks off with ninety five year-old tycoon Dr. Otto Kogg losing control of his breakfast cereal business to the ambitious but bumbling Ivan M.T. Head. In a botched attempt to improve upon Kogg’s beloved Freddibles cereal, Head alters the recipe and re-launches it as a Head Dietary Product. But things don’t work out quite as planned and soon questions are being asked about New Recipe Freddibles…serious questions about strange side-effects.
Our two wise-cracking heroines Anna and Grace learn that breakfast can indeed be the most important meal of the day. They get shrunk down to speck-size, thrown out into a flowerbed and have to stumble, slide, swim, tunnel, climb and fly their way past everything a garden can throw at them as they try to get back home.
But even if they can, getting home may be only half the battle. If you were so small that nobody could see you, hear you, smell you or find you, how would you get noticed? Discover the answer in Anna and Grace's first amazing adventure The Incredibly Edible Shrinking Freddibles.
