RRP  $42.89 $40.90
Can you imagine a meal without condiments? Never! No Ketchup on your hamburger and fries? No way! How about condiments walking off the counter? WHAAAAT! Well, it's happening at The Diner and there's not a condiment in sight. Tripp, his dad, his sister, and all the patrons are in disbelief. Condiment complaints of misuse, prejudice, bullying and more are scrawled on paper napkins spread across the counter. Mayo asks, "Why do they hate me?" With a tear in his eye Relish sadly proclaims, "People say I'm too sweet and ignore me ...or just scrape me off." Can Management and the condiments work out their issues? If not, it will be a sad day and a dining disaster for all! S.H.Wood, first time children's author, and Nic Gregory, talented Australian illustrator and animator, carry you through The Diner showcasing the humorous and at times emotionally charged personalities of each "famous" featured condiment. Adults and children of all ages will smile and laugh as they recognize their favorite condiments come to life. From that moment on the sight of any of these condiments will undoubtedly evoke new feelings: perhaps a touch of empathy for relish?
If you like The Day the Crayons Quit you may just become a fan of The Condiment Chronicles ...Please Pass the Ketchup. The back story, titled "The Condiment Chronicles ...The Family Portrait," reveals historical facts/speculations of when, where, and how each condiment arrived on our counter, our kitchen table, and in our fridge. Who would have thought condiments could stir up images of family, diversity, tolerance, competition, and individuality all resulting from an ever growing insatiable love for a variety of tastes. A 56 page book designed to delight, entertain, and educate! Without spelling it out the book shares a human emotional experience of belonging and allows people of all ages to connect with this message. Condiments and Condimentours, be on alert! Creativity is on the rise. There is always room for one more hot, spicy, sweet, or savory condiment. Experimentation is all part of self expression and being an individual. Don't hold back. Go ahead and spread that peanut butter and jelly on your hamburger a condimentour that's your choice. Remember, variety is the spice (or in this case the condiment) of life. Cheers!
