Mena has a fierce desire to be in the kitchen.
She is lucky to have been blessed with 17 grandchildren.
She loves nothing more than to cook large meals for them

Hilbert, the monster, is in charge of protecting
Mr. Pinkelton's secret hoard of carnival memorabilia.

Gregor Pinkelton has been working at carnivals since 1908,
and Hilbert was a gift from Mary Herr, a bearded woman he met during the Depression.

If Hilbert is not standing guard, Gregor is positive that someone will pilfer
his stash of collectibles.
