Just like all those childrens books with records that let you know when to turn the page, Meal Deal with the Devil is the real deal, featuring three brand new & exclusive Bobby Joe Ebola tracks for bratty little monsters of all ages, as well as a two story songs tracks that you can read-along with! Chandlers detailed full-color art brings the MacNuggits wry, twisted humor to the page, an epic matchup that creates a hilarious carnival ride for the eyes and ears.

First formed in 1995, Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children MacNuggits have become legend in the musical underground of the Bay Area and beyond, with their infamously unpredictable mix of searing social satire, soaring harmonies, outlandish and shocking truths, and poop jokes.

The band is planning a summer tour to support the new book and record release.
