Book Description: Stew for two seems like such a simple request, but in this wacky restaurant romp, that order is anything but simple. A busload of tourists from Spain ate up every drop; and so a woman, her poodle, and the waiter set out on a quest for that chunky yet creamy, ever so dreamy, world-famous stew. There's nothing these two hungry customers like better -- except perhaps just one thing.... Along the way to becoming a bestselling children's book writer and illustrator, Laura Numroff walked dogs, worked at a jazz radio station, and ran a carousel. She is best known for her popular books If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and If You Give a Moose a Muffin. Ms. Numeroff lives in Los Angeles. A writer and illustrator with more than a dozen children's books to his credit, Barney Saltzberg is also a composer of music for children. His original songs, such as "Where, Oh, Where's My Underwear?," show the same delightful humor that inspires Two for Stew. A native Californian, Mr. Saltzberg was born and raised in Los Angeles, where he lives with his wife and two children.
