Officer Katz and Houndini - a Literary Lunch

Maria Gianferrari has done it again! We had already fallen in love with Penny &Jelly - The School Show and Penny &Jelly Slumber Under The Stars and now we are in LOVE with OFFICER KATZ and HOUNDINI - a Tale of Two Tails.

Officer Katz is about to retire and before he does he wants to finally get Houndini, the only sneaky dog that has always gotten away. Will he succeed this time? Houndini has three chances to escape. But, will he? You will have to see for yourself! My kids are in love with the characters in this book and loved the surprise ending!

To celebrate this fun book we made a Literary Lunch to match:
  • a marked Davy Crock-cat's portrait
  • a cheese cracker sneaky contraption to trap Houndini
  • and a The Great Escape travel poster

Monster Trucks - a Literary Lunch

It is Literary Lunch time and I am providing the lunch over at the Little Crooked Cottage today. My kids LOVE this book so much, we made TWO lunches!

First up, is our MONSTER TRUCK lunch in our Easylunchboxes. We packed:
  • spooky glow-in-the-dark goldfish crackers with watchful eyes
  • a vampire Monster Truck apple
  • and a Little Blue Bus sandwich with powdered sugar and chocolate decorations

Next we decided we needed one more lunch to celebrate Little Blue Bus from MONSTER TRUCKS, written by Anika Denise and illustrated by Nate Wragg. Little Blue Bus is perky and cute, so what is she doing in the Monster Truck Race? Find out in this delightful kids' book with a surprising twist!

My kids fell in love with Little Blue Bus and this is our favorite page.

This time we packed a frightful lunch in our Planetbox Shuttle to match:
  • MONSTER TRUCKS vanilla yogurt with chocolate decoration
  • frightful mac'n'cheese puff creatures of the night
  • a Little Blue Bus sandwich with jelly, (s)cream cheese and chocolate
