The Incredible Book Eating Boy by Oliver Jeffers
Like many children, Henry loves books. But Henry doesn’t like to read books, he likes to eat them. Big books, picture books, reference books . . . if it has pages, Henry chews them up and swallows (but red ones are his favorite). And the more he eats, the smarter he gets—he’s on his way to being the smartest boy in the world! But one day he feels sick to his stomach. And the information is so jumbled up inside, he can’t digest it! Can Henry find a way to enjoy books without using his teeth?
With a stunning new artistic style and a die-cut surprise, Oliver Jeffers celebrates the joys of reading in this charming and quirky picture book. It’s almost good enough to eat.
My son and I love this book! We had it recommended to us by a friend of ours because it follows a little boy named Henry, and my very own Henry loves it too! It is quirky and fun and is filled with funny illustrations including my son’s personal favorite a cat pooping. He is four years old after all, and all bodily functions are hysterical. It is truly unique and a little boy’s treasure.
