Chill: Discover the Cool (and Creative) Side of Your Fridgeby Allan Peterkin, Mike Shiell (Illustrator)
Did you know that a refrigerator has the power to make your spare time more interesting and families more functional? A fridge can also give kids a sense of artistic accomplishment - and even help them make some extra cash. They can also use the fridge to horrify siblings and brainwash parents! Chill is an interactive guide for kids to make their family fridge the most cool and creative in the universe. This colorfully illustrated book, full of comic-strip sections, cool factoids and out-there fridge psychology, includes a history of refrigeration, instructions on how to create special-occasion fridges, 101 things to put on your fridge, the Five Taboo Fridge Behaviors, how to create a fridge art consulting business, crafts, quizzes and games and more. Chill will keep the whole family coming back to the refrigerator again and again - and not just to rummage for snacks.
Peterkin states that by reading this book, "Your life is about to change forever." It's a quirky title about the world of refrigerators and the art that covers them. He includes the history of refrigerators, the inventions surrounding their existence, the psychology of using them, and the art of decorating one. While the book is written in a tongue-in-cheek style and is highly humorous, it also presents a wealth of factual information. The author explains how magnets work and shows how to use them in pursuit of a perfectly decorated refrigerator. He includes unusual themed days to decorate a fridge such as "Squirrel Appreciation Day," "Moldy Cheese Day," or "National Junk Food Day." He even goes into how one could possibly go into business and make money at refrigerator decorating. Cartoons add to the humorous tone of the text. Parents who value a clean refrigerator door surface should avoid this book at all cost.-Cynde Suite, Bartow County Library System, Adairsville, GA
