Bad Bananas: A StoryCookbook by Karl Beckstrand, is a silly picture book about a bunch of bananas as they start to become old and bruised.   As the banana characters try crazy stunts and start turf wars with veggies in the refrigerator, this book also features yummy low, sugar recipes for banana muffins, smoothies, pancakes, and more!  The lesson of the story is that even old bananas can be useful and made into something great.  This book provides hands on fun for families and is targeted for children ages 4-12.

My younger daughter said, “I just love it because it’s so funny!” and my older daughter said, “I like the end because the bad banana becomes good.”

Karl Beckstrand has written several other books including She Doesn’t Want the Worms and his newest book Crumbs on the Stairs which are both bilingual, written in English and Spanish.

If you preorder any hardcover book  ($14.95), you will receive a FREE hard covered Crumbs on the Stairs – Migas en las escaleras: A Mystery (bilingual version).  You can order all of his hard covered books from Premiobooks.

Karl Beckstrand Soft Covered Books are available on Amazon.
