Product Description

Review

"Wonderfully horrid. Top juniors will love it!" (School Librarian)

"A romp of a book. Guaranteed to appeal to the most reluctant of readers...children will relish the rhyming text, and will revel in the horrors of the anti-hero's kitchen." (Junior Education)

Book Description

Korky Paul's action-packed and distinctive artwork is the perfect match for Jeanne Willis's hilarious rhyming tale, complete with all the revolting ingredients children love.

Format: Paperback
On a visit to the U.K. I happened upon a copy of this wonderful book. There is incredible humor in this rhythmic and unusual tale. When I read it I laughed out loud. I was unable to find it in America so I purchased it from Amazon UK. My 5 year old grand daughter likes it as much as I do. We read it often and each time it is as fresh and funny as the last. The illustrations are among the best I have ever seen. As a result, I have looked for other works by author, Jeanne Willis, and illustrator, Korky Paul. If you have a slightly twisted sense of humor you will love this book !

Korky Paul's illustrations make this splendid book come to life. It's a book you simply have the read over and over again. Written in rhyme the book tells the story of Rufus Skumskins O'Parsley who makes and eats horrible things and decides to mak the ultimate Christmas Cake. The cake takes on a life of its own and escapes from Rufus causing Rufus to rethink his old and disgusting ways. We have now collected most of Korky's works and my children, and their friends, always ask for more.

This is such a fab fun book. I bought if for my little 3year old who absolutely loves it and has learnt it off by heart. I think it would suit up to about a 6yr old, my son just hasn't got bored of it even a year after we first saw it.

Night after night after night my daughter requests this book over hundreds on the shelf! It was a favourite of both my older children too, and they still creep in to listen. The pictures are incredible too. I can't recommend it enough!

This is a cracker of a book. I bought it at christmas for my 4 year old daughter. This has become her favorite book, she wants me to read it to her all the time and to be honest i really enjoy reading this book. We both love the wicked sense of humor, the horrendous stinky ingredients that go into the cake and how the cake comes 'alive' and tries to eat Mr O'Parsley. It's a wonderful book for any child who enjoys the fun side of yukky stuff. I enjoy it so much I will definately recommend it to friends and my daughters montessori school teacher.

This book had my children in stitches. The comical text and characters are a joy and the fact that it rhymes is an added bonus. Would highly recommend.

This is a brilliant book that all my children loved and now the next generation loves it too. It is rude enough to be naughty but polite enough to get away with it:)

Should be loved by children and parents alike. Fantastic Paul illustrations (as always!) and a rather creepy story but lots of fun!!
