Summary:  When three snacks–a cookie, a pretzel stick, and a cheese doodle–escape from their packages, they discover a world of fun, not the dangerous monsters they’ve been warned about.  But when they discover a note from Mom encouraging a kid to have an after-school snack, they start to get nervous. They compare stories they’ve heard about kid monsters and their enormous teeth, and try to come up with a plan of escape.  Rolling around on the dirty floor won’t deter a hungry kid, they realize, and hiding brings about unintended consequences for the cheese doodle. Finally, they turn the note over and create a new one, telling the kid to just drink water when he gets home from school.  Cheese Doodle and Pretzel celebrate their victory, then turn to find Cookie. But there’s only a crumb or two and a half-empty glass of milk. 32 pages; ages 4-8.

Pros:  Terry Border’s photography bring the three snacks to life with plenty of silliness.  Kids will enjoy seeing how he creates a new world from familiar kitchen items.

Cons:  I found the ending disturbing.
