Food Fright by David O'Connell

Somewhere hidden in the city is a very special diner where customers are monsters! Joe the 'hooman' is starting to get the hang of flipping squashed-frog burgers and serving slug and chips at the monster diner. He's even made some monster friends and together they are off to cater at the monster funfair?! Has Joe got the stomach for the Big Squeal, and the Splodgem Dodgems? With a specials board that'll make your tummy churn, take a seat at Fuzzby's and join the fun
