The Incredible Book Eating Boy
Oliver Jeffers

As the title suggests, this illustrated picture book lets children discover their love for reading and its positive side effects. Following a young boy called Henry and his appetite for written words, the readers experience what it means to develop a deep passion for long and short stories, poems and other kinds of literature – also reminding us, that every hobby might have negative side effects when gone overboard.

The story is suitable for a cross-curricular project on literature and reading in cooperation with your local library or book store.
