Sneak Peek: ‘The Chupacabra Ate the Candelabra’ by Marc Tyler Nobleman

Readers of FOG! might know our friend, Marc Tyler Nobleman for not only his various books including Boys of Steel: The Creators of Superman and more notably, Bill the Boy Wonder: The Secret Co-Creator of Batman, which in no small part was responsible for writer Bill Finger to receive deserved credit as the co-creator of Batman (and which is the subject of an upcoming Hulu documentary), but also for his amazing website Noblemania, where he has tracked down and interviewed such under the radar pop culture icons as The Robert Palmer Girls, as well as cast members from everything from Ghostbusters to Back to The Future to the Super Friends.

His latest children’s book, The Chupacabra Ate the Candelabra, is a cryptozoologic children’s book that’s beautifully illustrated by artists Ana Aranda.

Like most goats, Jayna, Bumsie, and Pep’s greatest fear is being eaten for dinner by the legendary chupacabra—it’s common knowledge that goats are a chupacabra’s favorite food! One night, tired of living in fear, the impetuous goats whip out their trusty candelabra and head off to find the beast and scare it away before it can find them. Little do they know that candelabras are the chupacabra’s third-favorite food . . . and he isn’t about to stop there. This chupacabra has quite the appetite, and the goats are in for a big surprise!

Marc and his publishers at Penguin Random House were generous to share some pages from this charming and very funny book.

The Chupacabra Ate the Candelabra is available now from bookstores and via e-tailers.
