Flashback Friday was started by Jacki over at Lovely Little Shelf and is a chance to share with others books that you loved as a kid or teenager.
What can I say about Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs? I loved this book because what kid wouldn't like ice cream falling from the sky and a giant pancake closing school? When I first saw that the movie for this was coming out, I looked at my husband and told him we had to see it. You can imagine my shock when his response was "what's it about?" and that led me to find out he'd never read this as a kid. My mission was to find my copy buried in a box at my mom's house and show him what he'd been missing as a child, but alas, I couldn't find it.
We did see the movie and the hubs and I liked it but it wasn't as awesome as I remember the book being. Did you ever read Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs when you were a kid?
