The Incredible Book Eating Boy by Oliver Jeffers

Finally, a title that has caused a lot of interest is author/illustrator Oliver Jeffers’ The Incredible Book-Eating Boy. Henry loves books … but not like you and I. He loves to eat books! This exciting new story follows the trials and tribulations of a boy with a voracious appetite for books. Henry discovers his unusual taste by mistake one day and is soon swept up in his new-found passion – gorging on every delicious book in sight! And better still, he realises that the more books he eats, the smarter he gets. Henry dreams of becoming the Incredible Book Eating Boy – the smartest boy in the world! But a book-eating diet isn’t the healthiest of habits, as Henry soon finds out. Aimed at four to six-year-olds, this has been short-listed in the Children’s Book of the Year 2007 category in the Galaxy British Book Awards.
