The Lovereading4Kids comment
One of our Books of the Year 2013 & April 2013 Debut of the Month Fans of The Wimpy Kid will love this delightfully disgusting and dangerous story about what happens when Joe sets out to buy some chips from McGreasy’s takeaway. Instead of finding the takeaway, Joe meets a monster looking for someone to help him in his café and from then on food becomes something completely different. With a menu featuring Vomitburger and Chips, Flattened Frog Fritterers and Chips and more, Joe soon realises that he needs to keep his wits about him if he is going to stay safe – and off the table!
In addition to our Lovereading expert opinion for Monster and Chips a small number of children were lucky enough to be invited to review this title. One of our reviewers, Evie was thrilled to find the Monster and Chips review she wrote printed inside the sequel, Night of the Living Bread, she bought last week!

Monster and Chips by David O'Connell
Somewhere in suburbia, or maybe smack-bang in the middle of your city, there is a very special diner. What's so special about it? Well it does the best chips ANYWHERE but also its customers are a little bit 'unusual'...some people say they are monsters...The diner is hard to find, you have to look carefully, in fact some people say only a special kind of kid can find this special kind of diner. But maybe that kid could be you? When Joe the 'hooman' gets a job at Fuzzby's diner, he learns to bake zombie-cupcakes, exploding milkshakes and not to stare at the customers - even the ones who are see-through. He also foils a terrible plan to sabotage the annual Grand Cooking Competition.
With cartoon strips, revolting recipes and a Special's Board that'll make your tummy churn, take a seat at Fuzzby's and join the fun.
Also available as a full-colour eBook, with multi-coloured monsters on every page!

Declan Broom, age 7 The book was very funny when Barry was saying rude things about everyone. My favourite character is Joe because he likes chips. Fuzby was the monster at the restaurant.
'Lots of wacky monsters, slapstick humour and cartoon strips to please.' The Bookseller
