    1. there's really not much to say about this one - it's only 24 pages, and many of those pages are illustrations, so there's not a whole lot of content to review. but it definitely doesn't mean there's not much to enjoy in this funny little story about how impulsive mischief can sometimes turn on the mischief-maker, and why it's always better to plan your pranks out ahead of time to avoid these icky consequences. here we have a young boy who is forced to attend the dinner party his father is hostin [...]

    2. I'm usually quite generous with my ratings when it comes to ARCs, but somehow this story didn't quite work for me :|(It does feature cute illustrations, however)This is John-Paul, the son of a wealthy factory owner. One night when his father invites some senior executives over for dinner, John-Paul is so bored with all the grownup talk around him, that he decides to add the worms that he uses as fishing bait to the bowls of salads, that had been laid out for dinner.Perhaps the story is funny in [...]

    4. While reading this I couldn't stop thinking about how it gave off this vibe similar to that of Madeline. Then when I noticed the name of the author/illustrator and realised they were french as well it made a little bit more sense why I would get that vibe.Anyway, this was great. Really, really great. It is what happens when you're bored and manage to cause some mischief and that mischief then backfires.

    8. I received a digital copy of this title from the publisher via Netgalley.Ten Second Synopsis:A young lad forced to attend a dinner party with his father's boring colleagues hits on an innovative way to liven up proceedings. But has he underestimated the comedic value of his sneaky plan?This tale will be appreciated by pint-sized pranksters the world over as much for its humour as for its gorgeous retro style illustrations. I particularly enjoyed the expressions on the worms’ faces and then imm [...]

    9. What a weird little book. So, John-Paul is bored when his father, the owner of a factory, has a dinner for all the senior executives. Now, I don’t really care for all these stuffed shirts, so I’ll probably enjoy whatever mischief John-Paul gets in. And he decides to put a worm in everyone’s salads (he keeps them in the fridge for fishing). I’m kind of disturbed by all the worms’ facial expressions as they get eaten. I’m not sure what to think. It’s not really funny, per se. (Though [...]

    13. I was an absolutely adorable read and I appreciate netgalley and the publisher for giving me this copy for review.I loved it.

    14. Popularity/appeal rating: 3Quality rating: 3In a one-sentence nutshell:Well, this was weird as hell. I guess it proves that I am not sophisticated enough to appreciate French picture books, although I already sort of knew that. What made no sense to me is that NO ONE is so polite that they would eat a worm so as not to make a scene. People generally freak out when there's a hair in their food, and that's not even alive. I guess the absurdity is what's funny? I liked the colors and illustrations, [...]

The illustrations are charming in simple line drawings with red, black, yellow and green colors. It is a [...]

    19. This book is going to tickle the fancy of adults and children alike! The illustrations are inviting, the story is funny and as silly as it is, it opens the door to a conversation about manners and behaving "appropriately" at the dinner table. Mostly, it is a fun story that the 4.5+ crowd will request again and again, because we all secretly wish we could put worms in a salad, just once!
