This well-done package will charm its audience. The snappy text works well for reading aloud, but older children will enjoy exploring the subtle details hidden in the illustrations and backgrounds.

I LOVED this book. Its about a boy that starts to eat books slowly and then starts devouring them too quickly. He learns to slow down and actually read them instead of gobbling them up. I just loved the illustrations in this book so much! I think this book would be great for reluctant readers because of the interesting cover which has a bite out of it. Also it would be a great way for students to see that books can be enjoyed.

Love the book. It is different than most children's books in that the drawing appears more hand drawn. My boys really enjoy the story.

Love this book because it is a story about the love of reading and how knowledge is power. The illustrations are creatively crafted.

I am so happy I got this book. The story is charming. I love that the illustrations have been created on books, newspapers, cardboard...this extra dimension gives the reader more to look at and enjoy. Right down to the "bite" that's been taken out of the back cover of the book, the story on the pages is magnificent!

This is a very cute book with charming illustrations. It's not pictured here, but there's a "bite" out of the last page and back cover that your kids will find hysterical! Makes a fun gift.
