The Gross Cookbook: Awesome Recipes for (Deceptively) Disgusting Treats Kids Can Make

Susanna Tee, illus. by Santiago Gutierrez. Sourcebooks Jabberwocky, $16.99 (64p) ISBN 978-1-4926-5315-8
Did someone say Halloween party? “Severed Fingers,” “Bloody Intestines,” and “Maggot-infested Brownies” are among the intentionally revolting-looking recipes in this grisly culinary collection. Despite their unappetizing appearances, the 15 dishes are entirely edible: the severed fingers are cheddar cheese straws dipped in ketchup, the intestines combine coils of chocolate dough with raspberry filling, and the maggots are marzipan. Gutierrez’s vermin-filled cartoons complement the often gruesome photography, and Tee also highlights a range of real-life delicacies, including live octopus, fried tarantulas, and roasted rat. Picky eaters and unsuspecting dinner guests beware. Ages 7–12. (Aug.)
