When Taylor's big brother volunteered to make their packed lunches for a week, it didn't seem like a bad idea. But with a brother as weird as Taylor's, nothing is ever as it seems! It's a tale of mixed-up munchies and untradeable treats as kids lift the flaps inside this unique lunch box-shaped book, complete with a snap closure and portable handle. Picky eaters and culinary rebels alike will delight in this endearingly unpleasant tribute to strange lunches and even stranger siblings.

About the authors
As a freelance illustrator working in Toronto, Laura Watson has been creating whimsical illustrations for children's books, educational materials, magazines and various retail applications since graduating from Sheridan College's Interpretive Illustration program, in Oakville, Ontario, in 1995. Born and raised in the heart of the lovely Kawartha Lakes region in Peterborough, Ontario, Laura also studied Fine Art at York University and graduated with an Honours degree in Visual Arts.
In the past few years, Laura has enjoyed illustrating four trade children's books (most recently, Peek-a-Little Boo, written by award-winning author and poet, Sheree Fitch, and published by Orca Books) and countless school publications for subjects as diverse as poetry and math. Laura lives in the east end of Toronto with her husband, and works in a converted backyard garage studio surrounded by a slightly unkempt garden and several fat raccoons. She enjoys the outdoors, runs often and from time to time loads camping gear onto the back of her bicycle and heads off on vacation.
