Nibble, Nibble, Crunch by Willow Rose is a frightening horror story. I gave it five stars.
Agnete held a yearly lunch for her friends who had attended boarding school. She was cleaning the house & frustrated. The teachers were on strike & her daughter was home from school. She was also disturbed by her daughter Emma's recent weight gain & her pleading for chocolate milk too early to have it. Her daughter's chubbiness made her feel inept & not a 'perfect' mother. She wanted to hide her from her girlfriends.
It started snowing & Agnete was disappointed because she would be unable to show off the garden to her friends. Emma was thrilled because she like playing in the snow.
"Emma knew she probably never would understand why her school was closed, but it left her sad since she loved going to school. Not so much because she loved the school, but she loved being away from her mother all day. She enjoyed not having to listen to the small hints & constant comments about her size & weight & not seeing the disapproving look in her mother's eyes every time she ate something. Even if the other kids in school from time to time mocked her for her size, she still preferred that over her mother. Their disapproval wasn't as bad as her mother's. It didn't hurt as much."
Emma discovered a small, chubby snowman & sang & danced around it. Later she discovered the snowman wasn't what it seemed to be.
Emma's mother came running through the snow after she discovered Emma was not in her room. Her maternal instincts were awakened at last & she feared losing her daughter.
I received a complimentary copy from Amazon but that did not change my opinion for this review.
