D.W. the Picky Eater is an interactive storybook and an educational game for children aged three to seven. It is based on the 1995 children's book by Marc Brown. Players follow D.W., Arthur Read the aardvark's sister, who dislikes a lot of food because it looks disgusting to her. Items she does not like include pickles, tomatoes, pineapple, spinach, salad, parsnips etc. The story is told through narration and text on the screen and meanwhile many hotspots in the environment can be clicked for a short animation. There are also several mini-games such as decorating D.W.'s playhouse along with a game, soaking gophers with the water hose, setting the table and so on.

Next to skills such as following storytelling, vocabulary, pre-reading and reading, word recognition, matching words with pictures, sentence building and logic, children also learn about nutrition and the five basic food groups, for instance by helping D.W. set the picnic table. There is a Make a Story section in the game where based on three choices per page in the Picky Eater book a custom story can be built.

This is the eighteenth and last game in the Living Books series. Unique to this game in the series is the removal of the 'Read to Me' option and the addition of a button to allow for skipping out reading.
