I’d Really Like to Eat a Child

Depending on how sensitive your child could be if they do not understand black humor, I’d Really Like to Eat a Child is a friendly book that takes a look at a serious function in nature. Illustrated by French artist Dorothée de Monfreid, this little offering is a hoot.  There is a lot of tasteful art to chew on, and is a gut buster with tantalizing words written by Sylviane Donnio.

A scrawny little crocodile wants the opportunity to bite off more than he can chew. He’s tired of bananas; today he’d like to eat a child. But he’s smaller than he thinks, and the little girl he chooses for his first meal puts him in his place—she picks him up and tickles his tummy! The little crocodile is going to have to eat a lot of bananas and grow a lot bigger before he can add children to his menu! Simple yet hilarious artwork brings this droll story to life.
