Description

On their mission to find only the most exotic ingredients for top-notch dishes, Rutabaga and his pet cooking pot, Pot, somehow manage to get themselves into a series of pickles. Amid the giant killer spiders, a desperate acting troupe, a nefarious thief, and a horde of toxic gubblins (nasty, goblin-like creatures) who threaten to take over the kingdom of Evanore, how is Rutabaga supposed to find any time to cook? Filled with the first volume's same brand of humor and high jinks, this installment takes readers to new locations in the fantastical world Eric Colossal has created and showcases more out-of-this-world platters that "Ru" brings to life. As in the first book, in the back are three safe, easy-to-make recipes for all ages.

        January 19, 2015
        Once readers get used to the idea of a nearly bald roving chef who saves the day by cooking delicious food for the warriors in his medievalesque fantasy world, they’ll read through his exploits voraciously. Accompanied by dragon-fighting friends Winn, Manny, and Beef, and his walking cauldron, Pot, Rutabaga wanders the land, “searching for strange and magical ingredients,” inventing dishes like Roasted Mud Leech and Ghost Mushroom Salad. In episodic escapades. He tracks the monster Korkanis by identifying the Pyka’s Palm seeds in its droppings and challenges a crabby one-eyed cook to a cook-off. (“You’re going down, old man,” Rutabaga snaps, although his bowling-ball head takes the sting out of his tough-guy talk.) Newcomer Colossal’s stories bubble with inspiration, laughs, and even a few poignant moments. Readers will rejoice to know that more books are on the way, although it will be a while before they’re willing to try Rutabaga’s recipes: “1) First off, Korkanis meat is tough! Get out your meat mallet... 2) and just go to town on it!” Ages 8–12. Agent: Charlie Olsen, InkWell Management.

        Traveling chef Rutabaga and his magical cooking-pot companion, Pot, continue to journey the world in search of new ingredients. When the going gets tough, the tough get cooking in this sequel to Rutabaga the Adventure Chef (2015). Though Rutabaga is now a veteran traveler, his friendliness and naivete still land him in plenty of exciting scrapes, including encounters with giant spiders, a clever thief, and malicious gubblins. Fortunately, he's able to cook his way out of most of his pinches, thanks to his inventive use of ingredients and menus. Though there are a few references to the first book, the narrative is episodic, and it's not necessary to have read the first book to follow the story. Some readers may be disappointed, however, by the continued lack of character and plot development. Rutabaga's goofy artlessness is funny at first, but it grows repetitive as the story goes on. Similarly, the straightforward, cartoonish illustrations are a little dull over the course of a novel-length work. Suggest this graphic novel to fans of comic strips and other short-form works; readers searching for longer, plot-heavy series are unlikely to find it to their tastes. Amusing but bland, this graphic novel works better as a snack than as a meal. (Graphic adventure. 8-11)

        Gr 2-5-Rutabaga has returned for another round of adventure, excitement, and food. Exploring abandoned castles and haunted forests, Rutabaga and his pet pot scour the land for the rarest ingredients possible to make the most unique dishes imaginable. Once again, he is in over his head; this time, the young chef tries to assist everyone from a troupe of actors putting on a play about a poisoned meal to a befuddled old man who can't remember how his favorite recipe is made. Overall, the individual stories that comprise the book feel more tied together than in the previous installment, resulting in a more complete narrative. Colossal's anime-inspired artwork continues to serve up action and laughs, while his simple language and fast pace make this a perfect recommendation for reluctant readers. Kid-friendly recipes at the end, inspired by Rutabaga's adventures, are a nice touch that will certainly motivate some children to venture into the kitchen.

        Grades 2-5 Colossal's round-headed, jug-eared chef is back for more adventures in the second installment in the boisterous comic series. Accompanied by his trusty cauldron, Pot, and his backpack kitchen, Rutabaga begins by exploring a decrepit castle for a secret ingredient, which turns out to be a vicious, bloodthirsty spider (which makes a barf-inducing soup). One especially great story wordlessly follows Pot on a journey alone, as it gets into some heroic adventuring by itself. Elsewhere, Ru gets caught up with a melodramatic band of actors, then a crafty thief, and, finally, some mischievous gubblins, whose massive appetites lead to their downfall. All the while, Ru serves up tasty treats while Colossal delivers big laughs with his signature blocky, exaggerated figures, warmly colored small panels, and cartoonish visual jokes. The episodic format is the perfect match for Colossal's brand of quick-fire humor and comical reactions, and Ru's occasionally daft gullibility puts him in some direbut hilarioussituations. Fans of the first installmentand there are manywill be eager to dig into this one.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2016, American Library Association.)
