Food, glorious food!

If there’s one thing that transcends time, it’s our love for food! But what did people consume generations ago? And what will we eat in the years to come? Eat your Woolly Mammoths by James Solheim! tells the stories behind the world’s most delicious, nutritious and amazing foods, from the Stone Age to the future. For readers who enjoy compelling facts that bring history to life. Let the party begin !

Would you like a plate of woolly mammoth? Or maybe a sample of fresh tuna eyeballs? From scorpions on sticks and llama salami to oysters and chocolate chip cookies, you’ll travel through the centuries and around the world and discover the incredible foods that have been eaten – and enjoyed – throughout history.

Eat your woolly mammoths! explores the history of food and is packed with fun, digestible facts that young historians, cooks, and scientists will gobble up. Accessible, educational and fun text combined with hilarious illustrations make it an ideal choice for independent readers and snackers everywhere. A great choice for readers who have snacked on Ripley’s Believe It or Not: Fun Facts and Silly Stories books and National Geographic Kids: Weird but True books.

Includes sidebars, fun facts, recipes, additional resources and more!

James Solheim is the author of It’s Disgusting and We Ate It!, illustrated by Eric Brace. Pushed as a child by the Norwegian cuisine of his grandmothers – lefse and sandbakkels and søtsuppe (potato tortillas, sugar cookies and sweet soup) – he now speaks Norwegian with his own children and carries on his family’s traditions. But the kindness of her grandmothers is her greatest family tradition. He lives in Nebraska.
