Meet Edie, who resides--permanently--at The Slidy Diner. She'd really like it if you would join her. With Edie as your guide you'll have no trouble avoiding the wigglepedes, and she'll steer you away from the pumpkin asparagus pie with crunchy-bit topping (nobody knows what the crunchy bits are).

In her first picturebook, author Laurel Snyder teams with artist Jaime Zollars to give readers the ultimate greasy spoon experience, and leaves them wondering: Do the creepy goings-on at The Slidy Diner really exist or are they the product of a lonely girl's imagination? Reviews "...for the child who thrives on weird and gross."—Richmond Parents Monthly  "Here's a diner well worth repeated visits-but steer clear of the "chocolate" milk."-Kirkus Reviews
