Food Justice Books for Kids Complete 3-Book Set

Erik Talkin

This 3-book set takes complex food justice issues--food insecurity, how food is marketed and sold, and food systems--and makes them kid-friendly and fun to read. In three separate but connected stories, Lulu, Jesse, and Frankie confront the Hunger Monster, Snack Food Genie, and Food Phantom. As they do, readers follow along and learn more about how each of us can take small steps toward greater food justice for everyone. A section at the back of each book offers children ways to further explore the story and make a difference in their own communities.

Included in this set:

  • Lulu and the Hunger Monster
  • Jesse and the Snack Food Genie
  • Frankie versus the Food Phantom
