inside his stomach and refuses to go to sleep until has seen the page of what happens to Henry when he has eaten too many books!
At the back of the story book you will see the indents on the pages where Henry has
literally taken a huge chunk out of the back of this book.
You must buy this book.
It is a bit different from the others - it feels a little bit more grown up. The story is a bit more complex. It is still simple enough for my 2.5 year old to understand, and she would still have enjoyed it when she was younger. Infact, we've read this to our 8 month old who seems to enjoy it too as the illustrations are (as you'd expect from Oliver Jeffers) visually gorgeous.
The story is laced with humour as a boy discovers he likes to eat books, and realises he learns things when he does it. Eventually he learns that reading a book is the best way to enjoy them!
This is wonderfully written and you'll fall in love with both the story and the illustrations. Oliver Jeffers is one of those authors who manages to write books which you enjoy just as much as your child.
