Synopsis

Even Aliens Need Snacks by Matthew McElligott

In the follow up to his breakout picture book, Even Monsters Need Haircuts, Matthew McElligott brings back the young monster barber in a new tale where his culinary concoctions bring him galaxy-wide fame. Creating snacks that make most humans queasy, this chef has found a new clientele--aliens. Readers will delight in McElligott's gently offbeat humor and unique artistry as spaceships full of hilarious creatures line up for a taste of the intergalactic cuisine.

Reviews

Praise for Even Aliens Need Snacks : A tasty treat sure to please. School Library Journal Readers will delight in the parade of rainbow-hued, tentacled aliens lining up for Swiss cheese donut holes and turnip-side-down cake.

Publishers Weekly Whimsical pairing of creatures and snacks-an enormous critter with a giant mouthful of teeth loves the toothpaste soup, for instance-proves especially rib--tickling. Kirkus Reviews Praise for Even Monsters Need Haircuts * With the distinctive combination of the freakish and the humdrum, it's a good candidate for the stack of battered bedtime favorites. -Publisher's Weekly, starred review There is a lot of care and heart put into this package, which makes it stand out in a crowd -Booklist Full of crowd appeal. -Kirkus Reviews Praise for The Lion's Share McElligott is a triple threat: a sturdy storyteller, a stylish draftsman and a thoughtful wit who makes math funny.-Publishers Weekly
