Twins Tony and Tiny in The Popcorn Book love popcorn — but don’t know how or where it is made. The twins join together to cook and learn about their favorite snack, exploring what exactly it is, how it is stored, and its cultural significance in legends and stories from North America and Europe. In this 40th anniversary edition, however, dePaola joins with experts to present expanded historical facts, highlighting the role popcorn historically played in Native American communities and how they prepared the snack.
