We all know kids love macaroni and cheese. But who knew monsters do too? In this story, the monsters hold a mac and cheese party (no humans allowed) and share all their creepy twists on this favorite food. What do zombies like? Mac and cheese with eyeballs! How do sea monsters eat their mac and cheese? In the bathtub, of course! The party is going fine until the monsters are surprised by the unexpected arrival of HUMANS at their party.

With interactive text that invites kids to join in with their own silly versions (mac and cheese with unicorns, anyone?) and bold, colorful illustrations, this is a wildly fun read aloud with a positive message about the value of sharing meals with friends and trying new things. Perfect for Halloween storytime and all year round.

"You are invited to a monster mac and cheese party Friday night! Please bring your favorite mac and cheese."

This is a fun, silly story perfect for children!
This book is all about mac and cheese, but not HUMAN mac and cheese, as that would be too boring for a Monster Mac and Cheese Party.
My son loved all the different, gross MnC dishes these monsters cooked up, but wasn't thrilled when the humans indeed arrived with their boring dish. That being said, I feel like the book missed its mark for inclusivity.

The illustrations are bold, bright, and just as silly as the text!

The author included two simple mac and cheese recipes at the end of the book that would be good for a beginner chef!
