Welcome to a world where little people have big personalities. A world that's upside down and yet weirdly, wonderfully real. A world where Lilliputian thieves poach strawberry seeds. Where it takes a guy with a jackhammer to pop open pistachios. Where skaters fall into a crack in the cr me br l e, and teddy bear cookies congregate with evil intent.

Marrying inspired photographs of real food and tiny people with equally inspired captions, photographer Christopher Boffoli creates a smart, funny, quirky vision of what it means to play with your food. The scenes are hilarious and outlandish-- a farmer shovels a pasture full of cow pies, aka chocolate chips; hikers pause at a rest stop to take in a magical mushroom forest. And the captions surprise with their cleverness and emotional truth. Of the proudly gesticulating little chef amid the macarons: "Right on cue, Philippe stepped up to take all of the credit." Of the tiny bather up to her chin in waves of blue Jell-O: "In her continuing search for a husband, Gladys decided it was best to put herself in situations where she needed to be rescued." Of the broad-shouldered technician spreading condiments on a hot dog: "Gary always uses too much mustard. But no one can say so. It's a union thing."

Happiness, hope, adventure, pride, love, greed, menace, solitude--it's our world, seen through a singularly unique and funny lens, in more than 100 scenes from breakfast through dessert.
