"Space Battle Lunchtime is a hit show broadcast all over the universe, and the new season is about to start! When one of the competing chefs drops out at the last minute, an aspiring baker from Earth, Peony, is offered the chance to compete for fame, glory, and a 20,000 Solarbuck prize. All she has to do is impress the alien judges and beat the other five chefs (also aliens): mysterious Neptunia, sneaky Melonhead, intimidating Jacques, fierce Owline, and Rugged Meatabax. Surrounded by sabotaging contestants and otherworldly ingredients, Peony's got her work cut out for her. Is she ready for the cutthroat world of intergalactic cooking, or has she bitten off more than she can chew?"--Back cover.
