Summary, etc.:
What "do" monsters eat?" The waitress in this restaurant just doesn't have a clue. Monsters don't eat broccoli! How could she think we do? "In this rollicking picture book written by Barbara Jean Hicks and illustrated by Sue Hendra, monsters insist they don't like broccoli. They'd rather snack on tractors or a rocket ship or two, or tender trailer tidbits, or a wheely, steely stew. But boy do those trees they're munching on look an awful lot like broccoli. Maybe vegetables aren't so bad after all! This hilarious book will have youngsters laughing out loud and craving healthy monster snacks of their own.
