Best read with several kinds of cake at hand!

Bob Shea's goofy illustrations never seem to disappoint. Kids will feel as if they are a character in this book. I read this one for a preschool storytime and at the end, the group collectively agreed that this was a very silly story.

Bob Shea's artwork, with jagged edges, thick lines, and bright colors, is wildly successful at capturing the failed feeding frenzy. Keen eyes will catch the tiny bird, frog, and bunny that also keep escaping the monster's bites.

You might want to think twice before picking up this exuberant new picture book -- after all, that snaggled-toothed monster on the cover seems awfully serious about his threats to chomp anyone who reads it! Sure, his bites might not be too precise (he'll probably miss most of the time), but he's bound to get more frustrated and frantic as you turn the pages and get closer to his delicious, sugary secret. Of course, if you enjoy dangerously silly metafiction like John Perry's The Book That Eats People, it might be safe for you to try I Will Chomp You!...but don't say we didn't warn you!
