Monkey with a Tool Belt and the Maniac Muffins by Chris Monroe is a stitch. We howled with laughter when we read it and promptly ordered the others in the series (three more Monkey with a Tool Belt books--check them out too!). The clever monkey is the star, but his tool belts are truly awesome. This book revolves around “cooking” and the engineering feats and machinery required to complete recipes. The colorful and very detailed illustrations are really fun and diverting. Highly recommended.
