This is an amusing series of short memoirs (over fifty happenings included) of a wonderfully eccentric person who understands the importance of a refrigerator box (try leaving it out in the snow instead of the rain) and other childhood essentials that make the adult who he or she is. The anecdotal entries contain humorous insight into a bushel and a peck that make up the author¿s personal history. Many entries contain humor with some outrageously slapstick in nature, but most also provide an inside angst to what makes Cheryl Peck tick as a card carrying member of the paste eater club (my husband says he belongs to the Crayola crowd - I refuse to divulge my membership). Having felines, this reviewer can also picture her angelic ones acting as Babycakes behaves. REVENGE OF THE PASTE EATER is a terrific and candid account that uses laugher as a means to keep the anecdotal incidents from turning too grave to enjoy. Easy to read and fun to do so, Ms. Peck opens her soul to her admiring audience.............. Harriet Klausner

The title and the cover of this book let the reader know exactly what kind of book to expect. Fun and a bit quirky! I must say that I enjoyed this book quite a bit. Parts of it had me laughing out loud. (It really should come with a warning about embarrassing oneself by laughing out loud in public.) I especially loved when the author shared about her cat, Babycakes. The writing reminds me in many respects of David Sedaris. The humor seems similar to me. I liked the fact that Ms. Peck seems very open and honest about herself and the world.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
