Review by kmacneill
I LOVED this book. Its about a boy that starts to eat books slowly and then starts devouring them too quickly. He learns to slow down and actually read them instead of gobbling them up. I just loved the illustrations in this book so much! I think this book would be great for reluctant readers because of the interesting cover which has a bite out of it. Also it would be a great way for students to see that books can be enjoyed.
