Peanut Butter & Cupcake by Terry Border

Like the title, this book is full of surprises!  It is a clever picture book about the struggles of making friends and acceptance.  Border uses real objects and food to tell the story of Peanut Butter who is in search of a playmate. He encounters a hamburger too busy to play because he is walking the hot dogs…(insert a *chuckle*).  There’s the french fries that are running late and have to catch up (your eyes fall on a paper container of ketchup in the foreground *chuckle*).  There is wordplay and puns sprinkled throughout the story that make this a wonderful read-aloud. The author has also written , Happy Birthday, Cupcake!, Milk Goes To School, Peanut Butter’s Yummy Numbers.
