Nom Nom very excited about Papertoy Monster Day, so excited that Nom Nom hacked himself into the Workman blog to make this post for you. HEE HEE HEE. Nom Nom loves red wine and long walks on the beach, and Nom Nom is the biggest, greenest sewer rat monster you’ll ever meet. Nom Nom also loves dancing (modern and interpretive). Oh, and Nom Nom LOVES TO EAT CITIES! Mmmmm, asbestos. NOM NOM NOM.
Nom Nom heard that the biggest and tastiest city in the world is called the Big Apple, so of course Nom Nom had to visit. Nom Nom was hoping to snack upon a variety of bridges, trains, and, of course, some of the tallest, most scrumptious skyscrapers in the world. The pointy bits of the Empire State Building–they are a delicacy to Nom Nom.
But the city was very cold for this Nom Nom. Nom Nom does not like to eat popsicles of architecture. Frozen trees are not delicious. They do not taste like broccolis. (Nom Nom love broccolis.) So Nom Nom set out in search of tastier things…
Nom Nom traveled to Brooklyn to nibble on some brownstones… even though it was cold there, too, they were still tasty. MMM BROWNIES!
Nom Nom visits Brooklyn to snack on the brownstones. The snow made for a tasty frosting.
On the way there, Nom Nom saw a pretty view of the river. Nom Nom also spied a long, long highway, which probably tastes like licorice.
Nom Nom poses in front of a tasty-looking highway.
Nom Nom heard that bagels are a popular thing to nom in the city, so he tried one. Nom Nom likes cream cheese. Nom Nom plans to schmear some on the buildings in Philadelphia when he visits there.
Nom Nom likes to eat bagels, but not as much as he likes to eat Guggenheims.
Nom Nom is a bit of a celebrity in his part of the world (Nom Nom’s mommy says it’s not bragging if it’s true.), so he had to stop for a glamorous photo shoot with a top New York photographer…
Nom Nom refrained from eating the photographer and (most of) the photo equipment.
Nom Nom was inspired by the art and graffiti all over New York, so he stopped to doodle a self-portrait…
NomNom manages a portrait before chowing down on his piece of chalk.
Then, Nom Nom was hungry again, so he went to get some hot sauce for his next snack: the Statue of Liberty. Nom Nom could not pose for a photo with Lady Liberty, because he ate her too fast. Oops.
Nom Nom sneaks some hot sauce; he loves to eat buildings when they are wrapped up in a tortilla.
Nom Nom rode the subway to feast upon many more New York landmarks.
Nom Nom is not sure he likes to be underground.
Now Nom Nom is very tired from all his travels, but also very full. BLURP. So Nom Nom is going to settle in for the night and watch some TV.
Nom Nom's favorite show is Iron Chef.
Nom Nom loves New York!
–NomNom, who would like to give a shout out to the Workman editors and assistants who gave him a tour of their fine city (and who helped him learn to read and write for this post)–Megan, Krestyna, Avery, and Liz.
