top 10 food scenes in children's literature July 15, 2008

I agree with the first of these. I loved the The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Goudge, and still remember the tea party, many years after reading about it. On the other hand, lots of stories I read as a kid involved the main characters stuffing their pockets with food. And I always loved the food descriptions in Arthur Ransome’s swallows and amazons books, which don’t appear on the list. My all time favourite Paddington food story (the list includes Paddington’s elevenses in Paddington Bear) is the one with the dumplings that invade the house. But what about Pooh having to look all the way down to the bottom of the jar to make sure there is no cheese there?
