Monster Lunchby Pat Skene, Graham Ross
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
In Monster Lunch we dine with Frankenstein, attend a burgoo and a birthday party, meet a grumpy garden dude and slurp hot zoop. Each poem is followed by an interview with the main character or fascinating facts about food. This collection of yummy, yucky, messy and hot rhyming stories is bursting with rhythmical fun.
Read an Excerpt
The whole thing started in my bowl,
when I sat down to lunch.
I love zoo crackers in my soup,
so I threw in a bunch.
They floated in my noodle soup.
My bowl looked like a zoo.
And then I heard them calling me,
"Hey, you there, Soozy Q.!"
