Monster Chefs

Brian and Liam Anderson

Roaring Brook Press



The horribly horrible monster king summoned his four equally horrible chefs.

"I am tired of eating only eyeballs and ketchup," roared the king.
"Find me something new to eat or you will find yourselves on my menu!"

Trembling with fear, they each set off in a different direction to look for something truly scrumptious. But what, besides eyeballs and ketchup, could a monster king possibly want to eat? A rabbit? A fish? A snake? What one finally brings back may change dinnertime in the kingdom forever.

A Neal Porter Book


Praise for Monster Chefs

“Little monsters following along at home will also likely clamor to try out their baking skills.” —BCCB

“Delicious! Especially when decorated with eyeballs.” —Kirkus Reviews

“With its repetition and motif of wee animals outsmarting ogres, this has the feel of a folktale, but it is never stodgy, thanks to the adorable, and often hilarious, watercolor depictions of the beasties. Bonus(?): a recipe for Eyeball Cupcakes.” —Booklist
