Synopsis

How to Drink from a Frog And Other Things You Need to Know About Food by Michael Cox

How To Drink From a Frog weaves essential nutritional know-how into a humorous narrative packed with jokes, cartoons, recipes, quizzes and activities. From medieval table manners to surprising modern additives, the author takes an entertaining look at the history, geography and science of all things edible. Funny, fascinating and yucky food facts are combined with healthy eating information that every child needs to know. The engaging style will appeal to children who usually find healthy eating advice hard to digest.

About the Author

Michael Cox has been planning and drafting The Meaning of Night for thirty years. He is a former editor at Oxford University Press and biographer of the ghost story writer M. R. James. His lifelong passion for Victorian literature led him to edit a number of collections of short fiction from the period, including The Oxford Book of Victorian Detective Stories. He lives in rural Northamptonshire – where The Meaning of Night is partly set – with his wife.
