The Chef's Surprise

  • Whose dish is it? Moshi, a little ewe has just started as a trainee waitress in this original restaurant and has to allocate dishes to hungry customers. This interactive read with disgusting meals, funny characters and the mischievous details in Elo's illustrations will delight young readers!


    Who is this spoilt cheese dish for? For the mouse family, of course! Who are the fish and the giant honey pots for? For the bear, of course!
    But when the chef announces: "Roast sheep on a bed of confit vegetables."
    ...Moshi runs off again!

    A humourous picture book to deal with food habits, with a delicious final twist! In the end you can go back through the pages to find: Pippi Longstocking, a Big Foot, a fake Pegasus and a Mermaid.
