What does an average monster need to prove he can be scary? Just the right ingredients in a recipe for fright!

Marcel was a monster of medium size
With crotchety horns and googly eyes
Like any good monster, he worked every night
Giving the neighbourhood children a fright.

But poor Marcel is simply not scary. In fact, he''s hopeless at his job. After he trudges home from work each night, he turns to his true love . . . cooking.

He made earthworm spaghetti and cold cactus pies
With some smelly-sock soup and a cockroach surprise
There were rotten bananas on apple-core cake
And a dollop of sludge on a beetle-shell bake.

One night, when Marcel leaves his lunchbox out, a little kid looks inside . . . and is terrified! So Marcel gives up freelance frightening, and opens a restaurant where he can scare customers with his cooking instead.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Very Cranky Bear:

"A favourite new book . . . I love The Very Cranky Bear." -Canadian Living

"Combines a simple story with a great rhyme scheme . . . hilarious drawings and a lesson that''s not preachy or heavy-handed." -The Victoria Times-Colonist

"[A] jolly tale." -Ottawa Family Living

"Rollicking rhymes . . . a perfect book!" -The Guelph Mercury

Praise for Monster Chef:

"Marcel never gives up on his goal of being scary, and he finds a new way to reach it. He is most successful because he finds a way to use his own strengths to meet the objective. It''s a classic lesson presented in a new way." -CM: Canadian Review of Materials
