The same is true in Fran Manushkin's 2006 book The Shivers in the Fridge, illustrated by Paul O. Zelinsky. The five members of the Shivers family appear to reside in a usually dark and scary place where earthquakes occur frequently and a monster (a human hand) invades to remove objects like Cheesy Square, Jelly, and Mt. Ketchup.
The book is perfect for illustrating point-of-view, and the primary students were enthralled with it today. They loved how Papa and Buttery Cliff disappeared when the monster invaded, how Mama gets stuck in Emerald Lake (Jell-O) and then removed with Jolly Whip, and how Sonny Shivers climbs the Purple Boulders (grapes) and eventually ends up looking at the smiling face of the monster. Eventually, all the Shivers end up on the fridge where magnets belong.
Though many students clambered to check out the book after storytime, we have nothing quite like it in the library. Several were content with Pam Conrad's The Tub People, and one like Not in the House, Newton by Judith Heide Gilliland.
