Saturday Night at the Beastro by Jane Breskin Zalben, Steven Zalben

Dinner is served at the Beastro, and it's like no meal seen before! Fang-smacking delicacies grace the tables, with sloths, slugs, and crunchy bugs wiggling on platters. And for dessert, there's nothing like batwing pudding to delight the palate -- all washed down with a glass of skunk juice!For this rowdy gathering of hungry monsters, the Beastro is well prepared to satisfy the strangest of appetites.

Jane Breskin Zalben and Steven Zalben's unique verse and eclectic artwork -- created with original photography, digital manipulation, hand painting, and detailed collage -- combine to make this one of the most stunningly stylish and unusually elegant affairs ever!
