Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
Judi Barrett, Ronald W. Barrett (1978), Scholastic Book Services
Sitting around the breakfast table, a Grandpa is inspired to tell his grandchildren about the mythical town of Chewandswallow. In Chewandswallow, the townspeople live similarly to everyone else, except for one small thing: all of their food comes from the sky, already cooked, three times a day. However, things take a turn for the worse when the food starts coming in odd combinations and gigantic sizes, at all hours of the day! Ultimately, the townspeople are forced to leave in boats made out of bread in order to make a new life for themselves.
