“I want to eat your books” is a very funny and cute story that tells the adventures of a group of kids and a zombie that only wants to eat books. The children get involved in a quest to try to save the school’s library when this very particular zombie starts devouring all genres, from non-fiction to horror and history. Honestly, I laughed at every page of this book, is very well written and it’s an entertaining story not just for children, but also for grownups. Through this book, children will learn to take care of their books, to work as a team with a common goal, and to start a habit of reading. I would recommend it to parents and teachers, since it’s a great tool for the classroom and a bed-time story. I’ll definitely save it for when my son is older.

I read this book to my second grade class and asked the students what they really liked about the book and their hands shot up. Here are a few of their comments: *clever title *title page with the monster coming out of the cemetery *how the words sound like a song when read – the rhyming words *colorful and detailed illustrations *happy ending – how it ends in the moment *big words the zombie says…because they are fun to read as a class *that the zombie realizes that reading is really fun This book is perfect for teaching rhyming words and thinking what would make sense. Simply cover up the second rhyming word and having students use context clues to figure out what would make sense. As a read aloud, I didn’t even get halfway through the book and the students were eager to join in reading aloud. This is one of those books where students are sitting in groups reading it together whenever they get a chance.

I love this little zombie. Bought the book for my nephew who's really into rhyming books now. I didn't realize how hard it is to find interesting rhyming books until I looked. Sometimes the rhymes feel pushed, but I Want To Eat Your Books is perfect. Great for Halloween! Great for picture book lovers! I was a little worried it might be took scary for my little guy, but it's just plain sweet. I suspect I'm going to be buying some more copies of this one.

I Want to Eat Your Books by Karin Lefranc and Tyler Parker is such a fun book! I love books that have messages and the message in this book is wonderful! The little monster zombie isn't your ordinary zombie. He's a zombie that can't resist the smell of a good book. The message in this book teaches kids not to jump to conclusions and to give everyone a chance. I think it's a terrific message! My kids really enjoyed this book and loved the silly illustrations and the fun story to go along with them. This is a wonderful book, that's perfect for the month of October or any other time of year! Disclosure: I received product(s) for free, in exchange for my honest review. I only recommend products I've used personally, and believe will be good fit for consumers.

About a book-eating zombie who threatens a school library, I Want to Eat Your Books trumpets the pleasures of reading (and eating). It’s great to see a book full of kids who value books and who figure out a clever way to stop the zombie from destroying their treasures. The illustrations are vibrant and active. The zombie (and the mummy who appears later) are just frightening enough—even the littlest reader will feel appropriately scared. In addition to the idea that books are for reading, not eating, Lefranc’s story also touches on “the new kid” and the challenges that can present for young children. The book encourages tolerance and working through issues with others—even if that person might be a zombie. Fun for Halloween and any time of year!

A zombie picture book...perfect for Halloween or for any time of year! The illustrations are adorable and the characters' love of books shines through as they defend their favorite stories from the zombie. They will have young readers falling in love with books as well!
