A foolproof recipe for fun!

Take three favorite fairy tales, add monsters, stir well...and what do you get? Monster Stew, of course! This flavorful mix is packed with irreverent new versions of beloved stories. How does a girl monster impress a prince and his parents when she's invited to visit--and sleep on a tower of mattresses? What happens when Jack cuts down the beanstalk--and leaves the monster from the castle stranded on the ground? What does a witch do when two plump young monsters start eating her gingerbread house and home? With zany stories and lush, riotous illustrations, Monster Stew is a delightful dish for young readers.

Not Thugmond's type at all."" Given the pea-under-the-mattress test, the dainty damsel can't sleep a wink: ""A girl so rude and fussy could never make Thugmond happy,"" the king and queen decide, and finally allow Griselda a crack at the mattress (she peacefully slumbers).
