It's time to become a food detective!

'What's for dinner?' seems like a simple question. But do you really know . . .

'What happens to a field of potatoes destined to become french fries . . . or

In how many disguises corn sneaks into your food? (Hint: It's in your soda, your burger, and that Twinkie!)

Do you know what that 'organic' sticker on your banana actually means . . . or

Where the chicken in your nugget grew up?

Do you know the secrets behind what you eat?

In this book, you'll go undercover at the supermarket. You'll delve behind the scenes of your dinner, and by the time you've digested the last page you'll have put together the fascinating (and sometimes disturbing) puzzle of what's on your plate and how it got there.

This young readers edition of Michael Pollan's bestseller The Omnivore's Dilemma includes a brand-new introduction and afterword, an exclusive author Q & A, and a variety of fresh visual 'evidence.'
