Rubio and Julienne: A Sweet and Cheesy Tale
This book is supposed to be like Romeo and Juliette. Rubio’s family has a cheese shop, and Rubio’s father doesn’t like fruit. Julienne’s family sells fruit, and Julienne’s mom doesn’t like cheese. One day the kids try fruit and cheese together, and they love it. The kids find strange and crazy ways to give fruit and cheese to each other. They use disguises and messengers and a pulley. The parents find the pulley and break it. All the fruit and cheese fall on both of the shops’ best customer. He likes the fruit and cheese together and asks where he can buy it. Will the parents change their minds about fruit and cheese? Read the book to find out.
I think this book is good, but it could have been funnier. I think a few puns would have made it better. The author uses quotes from Shakespeare, like, “A cheese through yonder window breaks,” because a wheel of cheese fell through the window. The illustrations are good. I like the last picture because the parents aren’t fighting, and it’s just a good picture. I would like to try some of the food combinations, like cherries and Brie.
