The Incredible Book Eating Boy by Oliver Jeffers (HarperCollins Children’s Books, £5.99)

One day Henry discovers by mistake that books are actually rather tasty to munch on. He eats a word, then a sentence, then a page, then a whole book. Soon he is devouring heaps of books: Moby Dick with chips, atlases and even complicated maths books. As he gobbles up each book Henry becomes increasingly intelligent and his peculiar addiction grows and grows. But it’s not long before he realises how unhealthy his obsession is. Jeffers cleverly combines his recognisable and simple drawing style with a range of collage materials – graph paper, lined paper and pages taken from an atlas, a book of equations and an elocution book. This amusing story will give your child a healthy appetite for reading.
