One cranky caper is tired of being overlooked by kids at the dinner table. His evil plan will have your family laughing out loud!

"For those of you who don't know, a caper is a tiny pickled sourpuss, who lives in a jar in your fridge and is never eaten by children."

Adults love Mr. Caper's acidic earthiness. Kids? Not so much. Kids love lollipops and Mr. Caper is pretty mad about that. Mr. Caper will not rest until children of the world love him just as much as they love sweet-tasting lollipops! His master plan includes sneaking into the lollipop factory and making all the lollipops caper-flavored. What happens next, even Mr. Caper did not expect and it's up to lollipop to save the day!

I love clever picture books that can get both kids and adults laughing. This is one of them! It's a great read-aloud for older kids with a little lesson at the end about being happy with who you are.
