Perry, John The Book That Eats People, illustrated by Mark Fearing. Tricycle, 2009. $15.99. Content: G. PICTURE BOOK. This is a bad, bad book – incorrigible, unrepentant and mad for the taste of people. No matter what anyone tries, it always manages to escape and head out on another rampage – so BEWARE! Who wasn’t fascinated by the Monster book of monsters in the Harry Potter books? Just the idea that a book might come to life and actually take a bite out of you, I find highly amusing. Smaller childer – those old enough not to be terrified of books for life after reading this – will most likely be amused by the very thought of a people-chomping book. EL (K-3) – OPTIONAL.
