In Monster Lunch we dine with Frankenstein, attend a burgoo and a birthday party, meet a grumpy garden dude and slurp hot zoop.

Each poem is followed by an interview with the main character or fascinating facts about food. This collection of yummy, yucky, messy and hot rhyming stories is bursting with rhythmical fun.

"Offering (among other treats) a good-nutrition update on some old Mother Goose poems, Frankenstein's idea of a good feed, and an introduction to the concept of burgoo."
– Northumberland Today

"Skene's poems and information are enjoyable reads, both funny and informative. They can be read as a book, or poem by poem as time permits; these would be great in a classroom for when the teacher has a few free minutes (before the bell rings or otherwise). Highly recommended."
– CM Magazine
"Rhyming poems are paired with an interview with the main character or a serving of fascinating food facts. Black-and-white art appears in this collection crafted around a most clever premise."
