As all my recent swap partners will be able to tell you I have lately been completely obsessed with altering children's board books. For years I never bent any page corners or even the spine of the book and now i'm just ripping the pages off!  Cheesy Cheesy

This was for the recent Calvin and Hobbes swap. Go have a look at the gallery - there are some AMAZING things!

This book is based on the DISGUSTING foods which Calvin's Mum is always forcing his to eat. This is her recipe book.

Page two: Stewed Monkey Heads


Page three: Octopus Surprise


Page five: Spider Pie


Page six: Toxic Waste

 
Page seven: Rainbox Mix


Page eight: Compost Soup


Page nine:


Page 10: Reviews by Calvin.
I think this is my favourite page


Back cover


I had a lot of fun reading comics to chose which ones to use in this book Cheesy Cheesy

This is too cool! What an incredibly awesome project! I love how you combined the comic panels and put some thought into what would go into those gross recipes.

This is just an awesome idea. You took a classic comic and created a completely different and fresh perspective to one of the ongoing themes. I love it. My husband would love it too! Just hope that he would never say that I get my cooking ideas from Calvin's mom Smiley

Some of them are actual recipes with gross things just added in.

I guess I made it Calvin's Mom's cookbook from Calvin's POV Smiley
