The tiny town of Chewandswallow was very much like any other tiny town, except for its weather, which came three times a day—at breakfast, lunch, and dinner! Life for the townspeople was delicious, until the miraculous food weather took a turn for the worse. The food got larger and larger, and so did the portions. The flood of huge food caused chaos, and the people feared for their lives. Something had to be done…before it was too late!
An imaginative story of amazing food weather whose premise was also the basis of the Sony Pictures 2009 hit movie, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs has sold more than 1.9 million copies and is a favorite of grown-ups and children everywhere.
