Can you tell us what this book was about?
It's about a big giant that just wants a moon pie and that's the end of it. 

What was your favorite part of the book?
I liked when there was aliens about to eat but they couldn't eat a bite.   I love the pictures and we should go make moon pies.

Who are your favorite characters? 
Just Jimmy.

Would you recommend this book to a friend and why?
Yes, because I love it so much.

Don't you just love the title? This was DiTerlizzi's first children's book and, as aptly stated by the Children's Book Review,  "It's no surprise that the author collects toys nor that the motto on an opening page reads 'Never Abandon Imagination'."  You can find more, including coloring pages and other resources at DiTerlizzi's website.  How far would you go for your favorite snack?

And just in case you do feel a craving for a moon-pie after reading, here's a fancy and a more kid/time friendly version.  You'll have to figure out the milk on your own.
