Pass The Pandowdy, PleasePlease: Chewing on History with Famous Folks and Their Fabulous Foods


What do Napoleon, Cleopatra, George Washington, Gandhi, Queen Victoria, Columbus, Neil Armstrong, Montezuma, Paul Revere, Babe Ruth, Abraham Lincoln, Sacagawea, and Katsushika Hokusai have in common? They are all among the historical figures portrayed in this delightful book by writer Abby Ewing Zelz and cartoonist Eric Zelz. Just like us, the great movers and shakers of history had to eat, and their favorite foods turn out to be a highly entertaining thread to follow through the history of our small planet. History and biography have never been this tasty!

Abigail and Eric Zelz and their daughter Charlotte enjoy history, food, and travel. Eric has worked as an illustrator and designer with newspapers and education for many years. Abby has worked as a curator and educator in history museums and has contributed to historical and educational pub-lications. This is their first children’s book.
