“Henry loved books. But not like you and I love books, no. Not quite…” reads the front fly of this book.
I’m afraid to say more about the story – I mean you can guess the gist of it. But if I tell you more, I might give away the ending. And it’s a lovely ending.
I love the way Oliver Jeffers (author & illustrator of The Hueys) illustrated The Incredible Book Eating Boy by Oliver Jeffers. It’s not a typical picture book. Many of the pages look like conglomerations of other book pages, and the type changes frequently – sometimes in the middle of a sentence.
Overall, the story and the illustrations are entrancing, and enjoyable.
Highly recommended for ages 3 -8.
