Culinary Quest Excerpt:

In a cozy little Ahway Island house, surrounded by lush trees and tall grass, lived a girl named Helen. Helen liked to do many things.  She liked playing scientist and finding different bugs in the tall grass behind her house.  She liked acting out stories and playing pretend. She liked playing mini golf. She liked reading books before bed. But one thing that Helen did not like was trying new foods.

Helen was what one might call a picky eater. She preferred to stick to familiar foods she already knew she enjoyed, like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or cheese pizza.
