Just in time for Passover, this bite-sized bestiary is the definitive?—nay, the only—?A to Z guide to the kosherness of imaginary animals. The Kosher Guide is a whimsically illustrated, wild, undomesticated romp that features E.T., hobbits, Mongolian Death Worms, and even the elusive chupacabra!

Once and for all, our experts will definitively describe burning questions passed down through the ages, such as: Is a vegetable-lamb a vegetable or a lamb? Does licking the Pope make you trayf? What exactly is a pollo maligno? Is Sasquatch kashrut and does it taste stringy?

The Kosher Guide resolves (mostly) an ongoing, contentious debate (oy vey) between Evil Monkey—the alter-ego of bestselling fantasist Jeff VanderMeer (Annihilation)—and acclaimed editor (and co-conspirator) Ann VanderMeer (Steampunk), the creative team that produced The Thackery T. Lambshead Pocket Guide to Eccentric and Discredited Diseases.

Now you can broaden your imaginary culinary experiences guilt-free—mazel tov!
