"People always ask what you’d bring to a desert island but they never ask what you’d want from a DESSERT Island! Cotton candy, cupcakes, coconuts, lollipops, pies, and more are what this “dessert” island is made of! From such a fun pun comes an edible land of treats: ice cream rivers to fruit and veggie trees, there is everything under the sun to satisy your sweet tooth! Even healthy snacks like fruits and vegetable can be found- the book promotes good health too! The story talks about growing your own veggies and gardening, as well as having good hygiene, shown by images of our dessert island heroine brushing her teeth. “Macarooned on a Dessert Island” is illustrated by Christina Walk with vibrant images, colorful and creative and yummy looking! Through clever rhyme, this book by author Johnette Downing broadens a child’s imagination about what it means to be on a “dessert” island and helps them set their imagination wild! It may also get them in the kitchen… there is a recipe for a fro yo smoothie at back! This book is the fantasy I’ve sweetly dreamed of for years, and what I imagine heaven is like! HAHA! Pick up a delicious copy of this sweet book!" - Regina at Diapers and Daydreams.com
