BOOK SPOTLIGHT: Evertaster by Adam Glendon Sidwell

A legendary taste.  Sought after for centuries.  Shrouded in secrecy.  

When eleven~year~old Guster Johnsonville rejects his mother's casserole for the umpteenth time, she takes him into the city of New Orleans to find him something to eat.

There, in a dark, abandoned corner of the city, they meet a dying pastry maker.  In his last breath he entrusts them with a secret:  an ancient recipe that makes the most delicious taste the world will ever know ~ a taste that will change the fate of humanity forever.

Forced to flee by a cult of murderous chefs, the Johnsonvilles embark on a perilous journey to ancient ruins, faraway jungles and forgotten caves.  

Guster is an Evertaster ~ a kid so picky that nothing but the legendary taste itself will save him from starvation.  With the sinister chefs hot on Guster's heels and the chef's reign of terror spreading, Guster and his family must find the legendary taste before it's too late.

Adam Glendon Sidwell uses the power of computers to make monsters, robots and zombies come to life for blockbuster movies such as "Pirates of the Carribean", "King Kong", "Transformers", and "Tron".  

After spending countless hours in front of a keyboard meticulously adjusting tentacles, calibrating hydraulics and brushing monkey fur, he is delighted at the prospect of modifying his creations with the flick of a few deftly placed adjectives. 

He's been eating food since age 7, so feels very qualified to write this book.  He once showed a famous movie star where the bathroom was.  

Adam currently lives in Los Angeles, where he can't wait to fall into the sea.
