Living Books - Titles-D.W. the Picky Eater.

D.W. the Picky Eater is the eighteenth Living Books CD-ROM based on the 1995 book by Marc Brown, and the CD Rom was released in 1999.

Due to the lack of Broderbund's involvement and the low production values, it is not likely to be re-released by Wanderful.


D.W. is established as a picky eater, as the title states; she is unwilling to try anything, and when she does eat, she prefers it in very specific ways. For instance, when she is at Emily's house, where they are having spaghetti, she requests to have no sauce. Her values go to far at one point, however, when the family goes out to eat and she screams out her hatred towards spinach, causing them to be embarrassed and ground her from any future restaurant visits until she learns to eat what's placed in front of her. She is then forced to spend all other family outings at home with Mrs. Cross, a baby-sitter who is uptight, only allows carrot sticks as a snack, and forces her to go to bed when it is time. Later, she begins to wonder what she has been missing out on, especially once Arthur brings home a little umbrella from a Chinese restaurant. When there are plans to go out for Grandma Thora's birthday, D.W. demands to lift the grounding, which her family agrees, but only under a certain condition -- she must eat what is on the menu. She orders a dish called the Little Bo Peep Pot Pie, and to everyone's surprise, she loves it. She asks the waiter how it is made once he comes back, and he shocks her when suddenly he says that it is just a pie pastry filled with lots and lots of spinach.
