Funny story! Would pair well with the "Form a Banana song!"

If only I had read I'd Really Like to Eat a Child when I was small, life would have been so much easier.

This is not because I fell victim to some carnivorous beastie that could only be satisfied with devouring yours truly--though once I was surrounded by a ferocious herd of petting-zoo goats. Rather, I might have understood the importance of eating whatever my parents told me to.

Sometimes it's not easy to be mean. Cool book.

This funny, brightly illustrated story runs on the longis side and best suited for children around 5 years of age who could last the whole book and who would get the humour. Would also make a great felt story!
