A Mouse in the Marmalade
Jonathan Emmett. Tiger Tales, $14.95 (16pp) ISBN 978-1-58925-687-3
Every diner's nightmare comes true in A Mouse in the Marmalade by Jonathan Emmett, illus. by Caroline Jayne Church, perhaps topped only by A Turtle in the Toilet from the same team. Zippy verse accompanies liftable flaps that reveal the pop-up creatures in hiding (""There's a spider in the spinach,/ a snail inside the cake"").
