Jolene: Adventures of a Junk Food Queen is a children’s book that responds to the obesity and diabetes epidemic that is growing among young people in America by encouraging children to make healthy food choices. Via a plot line reminiscent of Alice’s journey through Wonderland, Jolene tells the story of a young girl who loves junk food. She loves it so much she wears red licorice in her hair–and pink taffy underwear! Then, one night in her dreams, she meets a bunch of cool characters who take her on an incredible, edible journey into a world of juicy fruits, super salads, and yummy smoothies.

The book is based on the experiences of its authors: Alexa Palmer, a preschool teacher who noticed a need for a nutrition book tailored to the way she had observed children absorb information, through fun and fantasy; and Catharine Kaufman, a nationally syndicated food columnist. Kids can relate to Jolene- she is a junk food junkie just like they are. AND she is transformational in her eating habits. This similarity between the behaviors of the characters and the real-life tendencies of children is what attracts kids to the story. At the back of the book are healthy smoothie recipes for the kids to make at home and with their friends, just like the main character Jolene does in the book.
