Many picture books are sweet, fun to read, and good for you. But some books are not like that at all. Some books are just… dangerous. Like The Book that Eats People by John Perry. With cover art wrapped in caution tape and stamped “beware,” this book looks bright and interesting, appealing even, but don’t be fooled. This book EATS PEOPLE! So far, The Book That Eats People has eaten 5 kids, 1 criminal, a shelf full of books, 1 library security guard, and 1 zookeeper’s shoe (that we know of). So you’ve been warned: read it with caution, and never, ever turn your back on it. Because The Book That Eats People is always hungry. See this book listed in our catalog
