AUDIENCE APPEAL: HIGH
This book features three snacks who discover their days are numbered, they will be eaten as snack time by a monster child. They wildly try to come up with survival plans, like hiding and more. Will they survive?
A darkly funny story with memorable characters, a horror version of his other food books. It would be fun for younger readers to brainstorm how the snacks could get away and what their favorite snacks are. The ending is a surprise that is both fun and well, dark. The illustrations are dark and grim and a bit creepy. Save this book for 1-2 graders who are brave.
