Rufus O'Parsley wouldn't eat supper unless it was ghastly. Wormcast butties, tubes of glue, pans of slugs in slimy stew. He decides to bake an extra specially revolting cake, but then the cake starts trying to eat him. This book won the 1995 FCBG Children's book award for Best Picture Book.

"Wonderfully horrid. Top juniors will love it!" ( School Librarian)
"A romp of a book. Guaranteed to appeal to the most reluctant of readers...children will relish the rhyming text, and will revel in the horrors of the anti-hero's kitchen." ( Junior Education)
Korky Paul's action-packed and distinctive artwork is the perfect match for Jeanne Willis's hilarious rhyming tale, complete with all the revolting ingredients children love.
