Lima's Red Hot Chilli-English Big Book
by David Mills
illustrated by Derek Brazell

Lima is one hungry little girl. She comes upon a shiny, delicious red hot chilli. She takes a big bite into the chilli, and experiences a spectacular fireworks display in her mouth! Dad, Mom, Aunt and Grandad all try to help, but Lima's mouth won't cool off. Who will rescue her? A great story to introduce children to foods from around the world. Winner of Best of British Illustration by the Association of Illustrators.

Book Review:
This is a story of Lima who, when she comes home from school, is hungry. Nothing seems to tempt her except the one thing her mother told her to avoid: the red hot chilli. When Lima takes a bite of the chilli, she feels like her mouth is on fire. Everyone in her house tries to give her something to help ease the “fireworks in her mouth”: first her mother with water, then her father with ice cream, her aunt with jelly, then her grandfather with mango. Nothing eases the pain. Finally her grandmother gives her a glass of milk, which finally helps. When her mother asks her if she's still hungry, she says she is quite full from all the remedies.
This is a sweet book and easy to read. The drawings are lifelike and the expressions on the faces of the characters are delightful. When reading this story to my three-year-old daughter, she covers her mouth like she's had something hot to eat as well.
