Night of the Living Bread by David O'Connell

Do you dare to enter Fuzzby's Monster Diner? Taste the foul food served up at Fuzzby's and meet the amazing monster customers! The second book in this laugh-out-loud series from talented author and illustrator, David O'Connell. Somewhere hidden in the city is a very special diner. What's so special about it? Well it does the best chips anywhere and the customers are monsters! Joe the 'hooman' is getting the hang of flipping squashed-frog burgers at the monster diner. He's even made some monster friends. But things heat up in Fuzzby's kitchen when Joe and Fuzzby are asked to cater the Night Mayor's feast at the mysterious Tower of Doom. Rumour is that if the Night Mayor doesn't like the food, the monster chefs are thrown into the dungeon ...forever! Joe and Fuzzby prepare slugs-on-sticks, dangerous pie (warning: do not turn your back on it) and twitching toad sausages to impress the Night Mayor. And if that doesn't work there's always the Ultimate Pizza of Darkness...Will the brave pair return to the monster diner? Or have they served their last bowl of bumbean stew?


'Lots of wacky monsters, slapstick humour and cartoon strips to please.' The Bookseller
