A very funny and cheerfully subversive chapter book about a monster who eats children―until one day he makes a friend.
The Yark loves children . . . with the love of a gourmand! This hairy monster dreams of child buffets―ham of boy, orphan gratin, breaded babies, girl rillettes.
But he has a problem: his delicate stomach can only tolerate nice children; liars give him heartburn and savages spoil his teeth. There are not nearly enough good, edible children around to keep him from starvation.
