IF THESE CREATURES DON''T PUT ON A SHOW, THEY''LL BE PUT ON A PLATE!

When Jean-Remy receives a singing telegram from his long-lost sister, Eloise Yvette, the Creature Department is once again thrown into an invention frenzy. Rumor has it that the Ghorks have taken Heppleworth’s Food Factory hostage. And worse, they are threatening to make tasty treats of the creatures inside!

Elliot and Leslie lead the way to the town of Simmersville with Ghork-grappling inventions in hand. A grand Food Festival is in full swing, and the fanciest restaurant in town is serving a very suspicious Special. Elliot takes a bite, but when strange green hair starts growing on his arm, he wishes he hadn’t.

A very hairy Elliot, a blurrified Leslie, and our favorite department of creatures finally come nose-to-snout with the Ghorks and uncover a sinister scheme. But can they fend off the gang of ravenous Ghorks before dinnertime?
