Sweet and tasty text from Elissa Guest affectionately describes a loved one using a variety of food-themed petnames. Classic illustrations from Marina Fedotova bring "dumpling," "pumpkin," and more to life in this adorable padded board book that ends with the assurance that the deliciously described honey, cookie, or sweetie pie is in fact the reader.

Marina Fedotova was born in Moscow City, Russia, where she is still living and working today as a professional illustrator. She describes her art as “full of kindness and witty humor.” Marina, who was classically trained as a watercolorist, loves adding minute details such as the knit on a woolen scarf or a fluttering butterfly overhead. She is inspired by the puppeteers who make their own dolls and perform locally to her. She, like them, loves to bring her creations to life.
