Late at night, in the little room at the back of the shop, Harold Frankenbagel works on bagels never seen before. The room is full of strange, odd, unnatural things-like bagels, but not bagels-Harold Frankenbagel's failed experiments; also talking bagels, whirling bagels, Fourth-of-July fireworks bagels, and the incredible whirling-spinning-flying-talking-ice cream-celery-prune-chicken soup-computerized-exploding bagel, his greatest creation except one...

Read this to my daughter tonight - fantastic as I remember it - magic enough to keep a child and an adult mesmerized at the same time (I'm not an author but I would imagine that it's much harder than it looks).
Harold Frankenbagel, master bagel maker about town during the day also makes strange bagels at night. One of his creations the Glimville Bagelunculus, a bagel that causes terror must be stopped. But How? It's up to Harold and Professor Sir Arnold Von Sweeney to come up with a plan to stop the unholy Bagelunculus. ...more
The Frankenbagel Monster is a cute little story about a bagel monster that is on the loose. Harold Frankenbagel is the creator of the monster but did not mean for him to be bad. The Bagel Monster got loose one night and was on the loose in the city. In the end the Bagel Monster goes stale and and Harold Frankenbagel and the professor who helped him capture the monster say he is stiff, stale, and harmless, but then the last page says "or is it?" So the story leaves the reader with a cliffhanger. ...more
