Rutabaga the Adventure Chef
Rutabaga the Adventure Chef | Eric Colossal
6 posts | 13 read | 23 to read
In a world where there are dragons, wyverns, and haunted squash, you'd figure someone would have recipes for them, right? Rutabaga and his magic cooking pot, Pot, join young adventurers Winnifred, Manny, and Beef on a quest to defeat a dragon, discover new ingredients, find monsters to have for and/or to dinner, and to save the day through cooking. Rutabaga will dare any danger to uncover new tastes, and there's a whole world full of food to try--from roasted mud leech to spider soup to peanut butter on crackers. His heroic recipes combine real ingredients, fantasy ingredients, and real ingredients that sound fantastical. Rutabaga the Adventure Chef is the perfect adventure for any kid grossed out when something weird shows up on the dinner table.

At first I had mixed feelings about this one, but when I let myself start to think of it as skewing younger, more towards elementary than MG, I started to really enjoy it and think of kids I‘d recommend it to. #lmpbc

LibrarianRyan I wish I had liked it. I'm not even reading the sequel even though I have it. When I get my copy back, it's going in a little library (once I read everyone's comments 😁) 7mo
IndoorDame @LibrarianRyan overall I suppose it was still a soft pick for me, since while it won me over I‘m also not feeling motivated to read the sequel 7mo

Group M, I want to apologize that I messed up the timing for our last #lmpbc round. I‘ve been really sick and haven‘t been able to read much or get errands done the last few months, and because the books somehow stacked up anyway this round I currently have all of them. I‘m sending them all out to @LibrarianRyan tomorrow, but there‘s really no excuse for me taking so long.

IndoorDame PS: Ryan, such an amazing book sleeve! Will you remind me where you sell them? I‘ve never had one and I think it‘s time I treated myself 7mo
DivineDiana Yes! Agree with @IndoorDame 7mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I LOVE that book sleeve!! 🖤💚 7mo

Karisa Totally agree on the book sleeve! Super cute! @IndoorDame Health always comes first and hope you are feeling better. Lots of love and absolutely no worries! Good books never spoil. I‘m in no rush 💗 7mo
IndoorDame @Karisa thank you! That‘s why I love this community 💗 7mo
LibrarianRyan @IndoorDame That one came from Owlcrate. But I'll send you one gratis. I don't normally sell my sleeves, just the huggers.

And you are not the only bad person. I have one from my other groups as well. I have it read, but I keep forgetting to mail it. I will be sending my own appology post in a bit. @DivineDiana, @alwaysbeenaloverofbooks, @allylu @Karisa

3 ⭐I had such a hard time getting into this book. Rutabaga is a chef, and they love to cook. But their love of cooking gets them mixed up in all sorts of adventures. Like plucking mushrooms off a long lost enchanted sword. Or following a Viking like clan as they defeat the creature that killed their queen. Overall this book was OK I just didn‘t care about it or the characters. I do have book 2 however I doubt I read it.

Liberty @passingfair If you're asking about the artist, it's also Eric Colossal. If you mean the publisher, it's Amulet. 😄 7y
ColleenLindsay I love this cover! 7y
