Staff Pick: Everybody Loves Bacon

Everybody Loves Bacon

Everyone loves Bacon but letting his fame go to his head may prove more dangerous than he thought

“Everyone loves Bacon. And Bacon knows it. He’s got the fame and fans. What else does he need? The other meats feel left out. He forgets his old friends, leaving them behind for the fame. Bacon has it good until… Everyone loves bacon. This is just a down right fun and silly story. Kids will enjoy the fun story and pictures. Adults will laugh out loud at the subtle humor. (My favorite line is when the Canadian Bacon says “What about me, eh?!”) A great family read-aloud!”
