It was breakfast time,|and everyone was at the table. (from the first line)
For the first time ever, this classic story is available in the I Can Read! format. With gently abridged text and beautiful full-color art, this edition introduces a new generation of beginning readers to the lovable, irrepressible badger, Frances.
From the Publisher:
Frances decides she likes to eat only bread and jam at every meal--until to her surprise--her parents grant her wish, in an abridged, I Can Read version of a classic tale. Simultaneous.
Annotation:
Dealing with the common childhood issue of picky eating habits, BREAD AND JAM FOR FRANCES tells the story of a young badger named Frances who is not a very adventurous eater. When Frances refuses to eat her soft-boiled egg for breakfast, her chicken-salad sandwich for lunch, or her breaded veal cutlet with string beans for dinner, her frustrated parents agree that she should be served only her favorite foods--bread and jam. Although she is surprised by her parents' decision, Frances is thrilled to eat bread and jam for breakfast, and happy to find it again in her lunchbox at school. However, when her after school snack and dinner also consists of only bread and jam, Frances breaks down and admits that she would like to eat something else. Frances's parents happily agree, and soon Frances finds herself eating, and enjoying, a wide variety of foods. B&W drawings, highlighted with touches of pastel pinks and greens, accompany the text. Other stories about this feisty badger include BEDTIME FOR FRANCES, A BABY SISTER FOR FRANCES, and A BARGAIN FOR FRANCES.
Author Bio
Lillian Hoban
Best known for her picture books about Frances the badger and her easy-reader books about Arthur the chimp, Lillian Hoban led an interesting life before she settled down to write and illustrate children's books. A graduate of the Philadelphia Museum School of Art, Hoban studied dance with Martha Graham and worked as a professional dancer. Many of the books she created, including the Frances series, were written with her then-husband, Russell Hoban.

Encouraged to draw and paint as a child, Russell Hoban eventually went on to write and illustrate children's books, many with his first wife, Lillian. However, he also enjoyed writing, and has written several novels for adults. "Riddley Walker" is the most acclaimed of these novels, winning the National Book Critics Circle Award, the Nebula Award, and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award, as well as the Australian Science Fiction Achievement Award.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"The Hobans have done it again: a sly text attacking a real juvenile problem and attractive illustrations."
