Mrs. Muffly lives by herself in a house on top of a hill. She’s always been a bit strange, but lately she’s been very, very strange. What on earth would Mrs. Muffly need with 27 dozen eggs, 58 pounds of butter, 41 bags of flour, an enormous pile of sugar, and 464 jars of jam? Could it be that Mrs. Muffly is keeping something in the basement . . . something like a HUGE MONSTER? What else could explain Mrs. Muffly’s epic shopping trips? Dyer’s playful picture book is a treat for eyes and ears, and her recipe for a not-so-monster-sized cake is just as much a treat for little mouths.

Kindergarten-Grade 2—Mrs Muffly has always been known for her eccentricity. Lately, however, she has been acting even more peculiar, leaving everyone to assume that she has a monster living with her. On Monday, she purchases a "big pile of sugar"; Tuesday, "27 dozen eggs"; Wednesday, "58 packs of butter"; Thursday, "41 sacks of flour"; and Friday, "464 jars of jam." The unseen narrators assume that all of these items are for her pet monster ("sugar to sweeten him up...eggs to style his hair," etc.) and end up surprised by her winning entry in the Giant Cake Competition with no monster in sight. Still, there is the assumption that someone must have helped her. The mixed-media depictions of industrious Mrs Muffly in her red-striped muffler and the hilarious antics of her blue, pointy-eared monster are certain to entertain children. A recipe for a "not-quite-so-monster-sized cake" follows the story.—Donna Atmur, Los Angeles Public Library
