Hamburgers? PHOOEY! Hot dogs? YUK! Spaghetti? BLECH! What’s a mother to do when her finicky son outright REFUSES to eat? “Shoot Him Into Space!” suggested the strange advertisement that Dad discovered while “Googling” for a solution. And so starts the zany—and often stomach-churning—adventure of 8-year-old Justin Jones, in "Outer Space Monster Dinner." The premise? Expose your child to the revolting meals served on planet “Ablort,” and he or she will be miraculously transformed in a broccoli-munching, liver-loving angel in no time! From the exciting blastoff at Cape Kennedy... to the creepiest creatures this side of Orion’s belt... Outer Space Monster Dinner takes young readers on a hilarious interplanetary roller-coaster ride, filled with both heart-warming emotion and outrageously revolting meal planning. With fellow space traveler (and finicky eater) “Old Man Scrimm” (who ate nothing but empty ice cream cones for 75 years), the pair meet colorful characters whose job it is to transform them into healthy eaters. There’s self-proclaimed culinary monster, er, master “Gorbleeze” and his team of outer space chefs, including “Big-Blue-Blordell”... the vampire-toothed worm baby “Goo-Goo Plopkit”... and the half-crab, half who-knows-what “Big Boss” who’s catering the whole stomach-turning affair from a high-tech control room 30 feet above the dinner table. Kids love all things gross and "Outer Space Monster Dinner" serves up a smorgasbord of "Eooos!" and "Yuks!", but with emphasis on story- line... outrageous (but well-meaning) creatures... and fun-to-read, lyrical copy. With dozens of brilliant-color illustrations by famed "Cracked" Magazine cartoonist, Corne, it's a zany and clever book that provides many years of laughter for young children of all ages.
