      I recently read Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs for the very first time, and I wanted to read this book too, even though my expectations were very low because I d seen heard others opinions of it, and overall they re not that enthusiastic Perhaps this is why I ended up enjoying this book, and being so pleasantly surprised by it No, it s not as brilliants as the first famous book, but I thought it was fun too.I like the social responsibility message despite it being a fantasy , I love the child [...]

      I feel as if this book would have been better had the bar not been set so high with CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS The illustrations were fun and surreal, but the magic seemed to be missing from the text The intended audience, kids, will probably still enjoy it though I was disappointed to see that the illustrator, if his short bio at the book s conclusion is correct, seems to have given up his vegetarianism since the publication of CLOUDY.

      A disappointing sequel to the great hit, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs I was not impressed, but I like the effort to revive the story.

      I like how this sequel focused on sharing abundance Where is there abundance, where isn t there abundance, and how do we all work together toward supporting needsat can lead to a great PBL project It also can lead toward a discussion on the needs of living things I also appreciate how inventive this series is I think it is important to connection the creativity found within writing with the concept of invention found in science It would have help my younger writing self, see myself as also havin [...]

    10. Jessica on said:

      A fun and fantastical book The detail in many of the pictures allow readers to look and look and look for all the things in the illustrations So much to see The story was very unemotional, straightforward, but still enjoyable.

    11. Jasmine on said:

      They turned the town into a charitable organization sending food to hungry nations and I got absurdly close to crying cause it was so pure.

    12. Meghan Collins on said:

      I love Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, and I have never read this book, which is the sequel, and I was drawn to it The book was a lot like the first book, full of great descriptions and great pictures that match the text In fact, I loved both of these books because the descriptions are really great Each food item has great descriptors including colors, textures, sizes, and even how they taste The illustrations match the text, which creates a better feel for the story Specifically, the picture [...]

      As the sequel to one of my absolute favorite kids books, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Pickles to Pittsburgh has a lot to live up to in my library If you re unfamiliar with the original story, the first book is about a fantastical town called Chewandswallow Kate and Henry s grandfather tells them what they believe to be a tall tale about this ordinary little town with a main street where the weather patterns are made of food Orange juice and other beverages rain down from the sky, snow is m [...]

      Judi Barrett, Pickles to Pittsburgh Atheneum, 1997 Almost twenty years after the original, there was finally a sequel to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs Unsurprisingly, it s not quite as good as the original Much of the whimsy has disappeared from the concept, though one can t fault the direction the story takes I m sure the question popped up every time Judi Barrett took the Meatballs show on the road why don t the people of Chewandswallow use all that food to feed the hungry kids in fill in [...]

      Have you ever wondered what the world would be like if it rained food and literally everything was made out of food Pickles to Pittsburgh clearly depicts what a food world would look like Henry and Kate dream of the city their grandfather is visiting a city that is completely made up of food It rains orange juice and giant slices of pizza and pie line the streets The kids eventually come back to reality and tell Grandpa about their amazing dream.I felt a little lost in this story, maybe because [...]

    20. Sarah on said:

      This book is everything you loved about Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs but supersized and I do mean literally All of the food you loved to watch falling from the sky now still falls down but in super sized fashion All of the food is bigger than life and so is this story It is the perfect circle story that will bring a smile to your face The journey the kids start comes back to them at the end when they visit their dear old grandfather I highly recommend this book to kids, especially if you lo [...]

    21. Annie Carbutt on said:

      The characters of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs are back, but now the story takes on a slant of reality Could food really be taken to the rest of the world from Chewandswallow Grandpa is about to tell us This book is about the pictures than the narration, unlike the first book which equally relies on both The pictures show a fascinating land that children will surely want to escape to, while the words tell a moral tale of feeding the impoverished and not wasting This is a fun book, though o [...]

    22. Eden on said:

      In this sequel to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Kate and Henry can t wait for their grandfather to return They even make him a special cake for his welcome home.The next before his return, Kate and Henry fall asleep while staring at a post card from their grandfather In their dreams, they find a town filled with giant food and explore it.I liked this as much as the first book I think it was a enjoyable read and those who liked the first book will probably like this one too.

    23. Joy on said:

      an intriguing sequel that picks up where Cloudy leaves off I enjoyed it but I couldn t help but be annoyed at the simple assumptions that the book makes in its conclusion I like the idea of the residents of Chewandswallow returning to their native shores to make use of the tons of food therein, but really, who is funding all of this transportation and storage of gigantic food A nice thought, but I couldn t stop the practical part of my mind from snorting at this bland oversimplification of such [...]

    24. Edward Creter on said:

      Two kids, a brother and a sister, are dreamily transported back to the magical, food filled and fun filled land of Chewandswallow to aid in possibly solving the world food crisis by way of shipping huge oversized food by boat I can picture it now Ice cream cone RIGHT AHEAD Sorry, Titanic fans A mouth watering feast for the imagination and partly inspirational for the Cloudy W Meatballs film series yet this book, I suspect, will make the movies seem like SAY IT small potatoes

    25. Amanda on said:

      I had big hopes for this one, but maybe I should ve reread Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs right before reading it, because it seemed like it lacked explanation The ending of the story was positive and a great dream, but the setup seemed stretched thin and like I had missed something fundamental If I reread the previous book, maybe I ll kick myself for being so hard on it, but on its own, it wasn t my favorite and I can t imagine it was any fun for my preschooler.

    26. Molly Toomey on said:

      While a grandfather is away on vacation, a brother and sister remember memories of him and bake him a cake for his return That night, the sister dreams of an island where everything is made up of food Among other adventures, they drive over bacon roads, see a lake where frogs rest on eggs and toast, walk through a forest of carrots, and experience orange juice rain The story is a great fantasy book that could be perfect for a writing prompt in which students create their own island.

    27. Janelle on said:

      The sequel to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs It answers the question about what happened after all of the people left.I like that the solution was to collect the food and give it away to places where people are hungry But I m not sure the message really hit home for the kids amidst the silliness Still, I think young fans of the original will like a follow up.

    28. Robin Berman on said:

      found out recently that there was a sequel published in 1997 to CWACOM s which was published in 1978 I had read CWACOM s in the early 2000 s when my daughter was little and again a few years ago with my son, now age 9 never knew about the sequel Just read it with my son I didn t like it as much as the first book, and like others have said, found it repetitive of the 1st book The plots is basically just telling you what happened in the same town after the 1st book ended.

    29. Melanie on said:

      Checked this one out from the library as a hopeful fun sequel to Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and was disappointed It seemed too similar to the first book even some illustrations are repeated on a smaller scale and the plot is kind of disappointing Recommend sticking with the original.

    30. Laura on said:

      I read this to my second graders as a follow up to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs While not nearly as strong and though it certainly doesn t stand on its own, I actually kind of enjoyed this sequel It s a great way to emphasize Barrett s use of black and white and color It s also a nice way to explore tall tales versus dream sequences My students enjoyed this story nearly as much and I m glad I took the time to read it to them.
