The story is very funny as well we the illustrations. Kids will really enjoy this unusual read.

My 2.5-yr-old loves Jeffers' books. I wasn't so sure about this one because of the collaged illustrations, which felt maybe a bit too stylized or adult for a toddler. But kids see what they want to see, and this was a hit too. Super-cute die-cut surprise ending. Every once in awhile, my son still quote "I'm going to eat youuuuu." Fun!

A great read for kids who love to devour way or another.

The mixed-media illustrations in this book are particularly wonderful, with materials chosen to compliment the story.
