Good Enough To Eat is an admirable heroine, who uses her wits to save herself from a mess of a situation. When I discovered this title I was excited because I'd never seen it before. Alas, it is not on par with Alpha and the Dirty Baby, The Giant's Toe or The King at the Door.

Good Enough To Eat book. GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT One of the many modern-day original fairytales written and illustrated by Brock Cole--I LOVE THEM ALL! I can't get over the originality, the voice and for sure, the gorgeous images he creates. I've become a genuine fan of this talented man's picture books :D.

Cole writes in a beguiling mix of rhythmic prose and snatches of verse, paired to equally beguiling watercolor scenes of rumpled-looking figures in a medieval setting

Cole writes in a beguiling mix of rhythmic prose and snatches of verse, paired to equally beguiling watercolor scenes of rumpled-looking figures in a medieval setting. Viewers who linger over the pictures will be rewarded with plenty of comical side details, but also come to appreciate the artist's genius for conveying character through subtleties of posture and expression. Fine fare for reading alone or aloud. Like Larky Mavis (2001) but sans the metaphysics, this folklorish original tale gives a poor, scorned orphan a chance to show her inner stuff, and to make a fresh start.

Good Enough to Eat. A penniless, homeless girl sells paper birds and stale buns in the village. In the process, she also gains dignity and a proper identity in Brock Cole’s humorous picture book that delivers a delicious dose of comeuppance in the girl’s triumph over those who dismiss her, or never really see her at all.

Good enough to become a classic fairy tale. Parents need to know that this clever fairy tale includes a maiden-eating ogre and the maiden who cuts her way out of the ogre's belly, slashing his black heart. This bit of violence is told in prose and doesn't look gory on the page. If kids are fine with the darker moments of Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales, they'll be OK with this one.

BROCK COLE is the author of several highly acclaimed novels as well as the author and illustrator of many picture books, including Good Enough to Eat, Buttons, and Larky Mavis. He lives in Buffalo, New York.

Once there was a poor girl who had no mama and no papa and nothing at all, not even a name.  But then one day an Ogre comes knocking at the town’s gate, threatening to ravage the town unless the townspeople give him one of their fair maidens. Of course they pick this poor girl to be sacrificed. They dress her in a gown and a paper crown, put her in a sack, and leave her for the Ogre. But this brave and clever girl manages to outwit the Ogre and all the townspeople, too, earning a purse full of gold, a fine sharp sword, and most important, a fitting name for herself: Good-Enough-to-Eat. This satisfying story has the feel of a classic fairy tale, brought to life by Brock Cole’s expressive watercolors. Good Enough To Eat is a 2008 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

The heroine who was viewed as worthless by her town, uses a situation to her advantage. I immediately searched for it after reading it as library book. Lyrical and fun to read to children. Also lovely for parents looking for something beyond fairytale marriages for their girls.

I would also recommend Brock Cole's Fair Monaco. A really great one also. Kids (4 & 3) "read" the books to themselves the morning after! I hope these books come back into print or receive some form of belated Newbery award to assure its print in perpetuity.

My children- ages 6 and 4- LOVE this book, and our family can't read it without laughing out loud! The illustrations alone are hilarious. Good Enough To Eat is an admirable heroine, who uses her wits to save herself from a mess of a situation. A happy ending, plucky main character, and the overcoming of what seems to be a hopeless obstacle all make this book a new family favorite.

Brock Cole is one of the best children's book authors out there. When I discovered this title I was excited because I'd never seen it before. Alas, it is not on par with Alpha and the Dirty Baby, The Giant's Toe or The King at the Door. It is an interesting and clever story but the overly jumbled language is its downfall. The illustrations are typical of Cole's work.

First borrowed this book from the library and fell in love with it. Had to own it. It's crazy, funny, illustrated so well, and the ending is superb! Girl power!

The author of "Buttons" (Farrar Straus Giroux, 2000) employs familiar folkloric elements to create an amusing tale about a resourceful girl who slays an Ogre and gains a fortune. When an Ogre comes to a town and demands a bride, a poor wretched girl variously called, "Scraps- and- Smells", "Skin-and-Bones", or "Sweets-and-Treats" who was considered "a pest and a bother" by the townspeople is dressed in fine clothing, placed in a bag, and set outside the town gate. The Ogre finds the bag and says, "Ha! What's this?" and the girl replies with her first name. The Ogre cries, "Not good enough!" and grabs some animals to eat. When the townspeople ask the girl, Oh, what more could he possibly want?" the clever girl tells them that the Ogre also wants a dowry. This time when the Ogre comes back for his bride, the girl responds to his question, "What is this?" with her second name, and the Ogre repeats, "Not Good Enough!" The colorful illustrations sparkle with humor: The fat ogre is dressed in a ballooning blouse, striped tights and an armored vest, and always has mice crawling on him; As the Ogre is swallowing the girl in the sack, the previously devoured goat and sheep peek out of his mouth; The girl is dressed in a green dress and wearing a "gold paper" crown, and as she is being stuffed into a sack, one large foot seems to resist; The mayor looking very self-satisfied holds his hands up to calm a group of clearly agitated townspeople. This is a delightful story to share with children, ages 5 and up.
Wooden Purple Romeo
Outstanding fairy tale with strong female MC. Hilarious antics and illustrations to match. Feels like a Hans Christian Anderson Story with its clever characters and foolish towns-folk. Timeless watercolor and pen and ink art.

Greatest. This is probably the all time favorite book for my 4 and 6 year-old kids, and at this point it's probably my favorite children's book as well. Wonderful watercolors and most importantly, an excellent story that's tremendous fun to read aloud. I don't know what Brock Cole's secret is, but he's crafted a children's fable that sounds timeless, as though we'd all known it forever even though it's new. And it really is tremendous fun to read aloud. Highest possible recommendation.
It's a great story. We bought several books to give to friends of our daughters - good message for a girl. Love the illustration style.
