From the Publisher

If young readers are hungry when they step through the spider web-covered entrance to the Nightmare Cafe, they won't be for long. he first stop is the lounge, where Mr. Moss serves up mouth-drooling concoctions made with gloop, algae, and mystery mash, topped with eyeball swizzle sticks. Out in the blazing hot kitchen the warty Chef Blister watches over several boiling cauldrons, always adding suspicious ingredients. Specialties of the house include Turtle Eyes in Mud Sauce, Salad of Rotting Leaves with Warm Slugs, and Beetle Wings Fried in Motor Oil. The powder room might be a welcome rest stop if it weren't such a beehive (literally, in the toilet) of activity. Someone is always ill and lying on the bed of nails, Gertha is constantly cleaning, and the waitress Octavia pops in regularly to catch up on gossip and spray herself with perfume.

Filled with flaps and tabs to pull, this wild and wacky restaurant is the second colorful pop-up creation of Alex Henry and Antje von Stemm.
