Matilda's nearly the worst waitress Burt's Diner has ever had: her talents lie not in food serving, but in storytelling. She's always dreaming up adventure stories--and so the townspeople forgive her inept waitressing to hear her 'humdingers'--until a city slicker tries to enforce the health codes Matilda's been breaking right and left. Matilda must straighten up and avid her humdingers--but they prove her salvation when robbers attack. Tim Bowers' whimsical drawings enhance a plot for grades 2-4 packed with fun twists and turns.
