My breakfast was revolting – it was simply divine.
My lunch was repulsive, I liked it just fine.
My dinner was ghastly – it was pure gourmet .
You’ll never believe the things I ate today!
Sampurna Chattarji’s clever use of hyperbole and Vibha Surya’s quirky illustrations bring a child’s monstrous imagination to life.
This delightful book with fold-out flaps will leave you shuddering and chuckling.
An unusual book that had my daughter talking for days, there is something delightful and satisfying about reading and immersing oneself in What Did the Monster Child Eat Today? My daughter's imagination feasted on its language and clever exaggerations. The book is about a little girl who asks us not to be fooled by how she looks -- she is a little monster inside her head! We see her proclaiming all that she eats because she is a monster child: eyeballs as runny as egg-yolk, delicious lice (instead of rice) crispies burnt extra black (we like all the play on words) and more. Every child is hungry for these kinds of bookish experiences and this was such a good meal for my daughter! Sampurna Chattarji's clever use of hyperbole and Vibha Surya's quirky illustrations bring a child's monstrous imagination to life.
