Why you should read it:

 

Thanks to the talented Tara Lazar and Tammi Sauer, I’m on a monster kick right now so my bookshelves are quickly being filled with all kinds of cool monster books. MONSTER CHEFS starts out with an almost comfortingly familiar feel of a fairy tale with the four monster chefs going off in four different directions in search of something new for the monster king to eat. Then the story takes on a delicious twist as each chef comes across something they think would please their king. The final surprise comes when the last chef makes it back to the kingdom where the monster king can hardly wait to try something new. I love, love, LOVED the unexpected ending and thoroughly enjoyed the lovely illustrations which accompanied this delightful children’s book. This book is definitely a keeper!
