“One of the season’s best new Halloween surprises. This interactive monster gathering is fun with a capital F. From pop-ups to google eyes to textured insets, fifteen different tricks treat kids to a goopy, gloppy monster’s feast. If you grab only one book this Halloween, this one might be your best choice.”
— Kelly Milner Halls, Editor,

“A bowl full of fright is stirred up in the paper-engineered Food Fright: A Mouthwatering Novelty Book by Karen Rostoker-Gruber…”
— Publisher’s Weekly

“Each page offers something to touch, push, pull or as with the last page, pop-up. All the creatures with their totally unappetizing foods decide to have a food fright or food fight. Better watch out there is a slime fondue just waiting for the reader.”
— Marilyn Courtot, Editor, Children’s Book Guild
