The Jellies and the Crunchers by Matt Bell

Charming and irresistible…

Through a tale of a quirky town divided by people’s personal choices, Bell presents an affecting tale about the transformational power of understanding and acceptance. The quirky town has all kind of people but is divided by their personal food choices. As ignorance and hatred take hold, the people find it hard to accept those who differ from them. But a little girl decides to try something new, setting the stage for others to follow the suit. Though Bell taps into difficult themes of diversity and uniqueness, his endearing storytelling and child-accessible prose make sure young readers stay invested in the story throughout. Pleasing, brightly colored array of illustrations affectingly captures not only the quirkiness and the chaos of the town but also the beauty of the place as the townsfolks celebrate diversity, understanding, and acceptance. Bell’s charming storytelling, the bustling scenes of everyday town life, and the underlying message of tolerance and compassion make it a stand-out.
