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.
