"Screaming Chef" is a Tasty Tale by Author Peter Ackerman

Why does the young lad in this book scream, instead of sing, for his supper? Well, maybe it's because he is so accustomed to the fine delicacies his parents prepare every night. Read "Screaming Chef" to learn how this dinner dilemma is solved. As a special treat, author Peter Ackerman visits Bank Street Book Store on Saturday, October 21 at 10:30 a.m. to share this delightful story. Peter will read and sign copies of "Screaming Chef" as well as two other popular titles he has written: "Lonely Phone Booth" and "Lonely Typewriter." Enjoy these terrific tales of family (and kitchen) humor with no reservations required!
