A favourite food-related book that speaks to the importance of friendship is Enemy Pie by Derek Munson and illustrated by Tara Calahan King (2000, Chronicle Books). This picture book tells the story of a boy who had a new neighbour on his enemy list. Hoping that a secret recipe that his dad offers to make will help him get rid of his enemy, he discovers Enemy Pie helps him make a new friend.
