The Lovereading4Kids comment
Best-selling Matt Whyman’s new story about the Savage family is both as hilarious and as dark as the original. The Savage family are as regular and normal as any other family. Except in one important particular. And that is in what they eat. Now the Savages are in the USA, a country with larger meals which is a big help. But they still need to disguise their very particular appetites. To do so, the Savages set up a vegan café – about as far from their own desires as possible. But will they succeed in keeping their secret hidden?
American Savage by Matt Whyman
The sharp and hilarious second book in The Savages series about an everyday family with some not-so-everday problems.
Vegan, veggie, carnivore ...humanitarian? Welcome to the top of the food chain. The Savages are back - this time in a country where servings come supersized. Titus, Angelica and the kids go to great lengths to fit into their new lives in sunny Florida. But that's not easy when their appetite runs to feasts of human flesh. In this dark comic serving of everyday family life with contemporary cannibals, the Savages seek to hide in plain sight by setting up a vegan cafe. But when the venture turns out to be a surprise sensation, and bad apples bob to the surface, Titus is forced to question whether the family have finally bitten off more than they can chew.

Just occasionally I read a book so deliciously dark ... that it takes my breath away - and this is such a book. Daily Mail
