Preparations are going smoothly for a new restaurant in town until the owners realize they are missing a key ingredient. Watch what happens when word gets out that tables are needed for opening day. The premise is simple, silly, and unforgettably entertaining. Abraham Schroeder's second book from Ripple Grove Press is a delightful story that breaks from the carefully measured humor of his debut book, The Gentleman Bat. Here he teams up with illustrator Micah Monkey, whose colorful and expressive drawings throw readers into a chaotic world filled with just too many tables! The comical story and bright visuals will keep readers thoroughly entertained as they revisit the book time and time again.

Praise For Too Many Tables

"Delightfully cartoony artwork enlivens the surreal situation, in this wonderfully charming read-aloud story."  —Midwest Book Review
