A little girl is delighted that her mother has stopped working, but when her mom starts attending cooking school, the girl soon realizes it may not be so great after all. The kitchen has been overtaken by outlandish smells and bizarre concoctions. Day after day, horrendous dishes are presented for the poor child. Her mother's Barbequed Brains of a Bee and French Fried Feet of a Frog are to be grotesquely expected on Mondays and Wednesdays. Each meal brings about a horrendous side effect for the girl, who is just waiting for a normal meal again.
Soon, enough is enough! The little girl has no choice but to investigate where her mother has been learning to make such repulsive cuisine. Who, or what, could be behind these terrible recipes? When the truth is uncovered, it may finally put an end to all of this! This playful tale, with gross-out text and whimsical illustrations, is sure to make kids and parents giggle during reading time, while reinforcing reading skills with fun rhymes and repetitions.
