Book Review: Monster and Chips – David O’Connell

Monster and Chips

The blurb says says:

Meet the amazing monster customers and sample the foul-food served up daily at Fuzzby’s diner – the brilliant setting for this innovative series from debut author and illustrator, David O’Connell.

Somewhere in suburbia, or maybe smack-bang in the middle of your city, there is a very special diner. What’s so special about it? Well it does the best chips ANYWHERE but also its customers are a little bit ‘unusual’… some people say they are monsters… The diner is hard to find, you have to look carefully, in fact some people say only a special kind of kid can find this special kind of diner. But maybe that kid could be you?

When Joe the ‘hooman’ gets a job at Fuzzby’s diner, he learns to bake zombie-cupcakes, exploding milkshakes and not to stare at the customers – even the ones who are see-through. He also foils a terrible plan to sabotage the annual Grand Cooking Competition.

My Review

Format – Paperback

Pages – 192 Pages

Series – Monster and Chips Book 1

My Rating – 5 stars

This book was chosen by my 9 year old Jake for our bedtime story, it is a chapter book and it took three night for us to read it, we probably read for longer each night than we usually would as a) the chapters are quite long and b) we really could not put it down!

The book is very funny and full of disgusting meal combinations which really do make your stomach churn! The illustrations make the book and we really enjoyed how they were incorporated into the story enabling us to read them as we went along without losing the flow of the book.
