The NNNNO’CN was read by Piers Anthony (yes, THAT Piers Anthony!)
He had this to say about it:
…a rather original story centered on fantastic cooking – literally fantastic, literally cooking – merged with a boy and dog story. It’s pretty wild from the start, with the boy’s mother a superlatively bad cook getting into a televised cooking contest, and demonic figures being fended off by the dog. There is romance along the way, and plotting by evil figures, and of course that carnivorous sheep. I think young readers will like it.
