Staff Reviews

Elise Gravel, beloved (at least by me) for her collection of message monster customizable postage stamps, also has a series of board books, a contemporary take on the classic Mr Men and Miss children’s books. In I’m Hungry, a monster eats a slice of pizza, followed by the plate, the pizza box, and more. That monster is hungry! Giggles aplenty, all the way to the surprise ending.

— Daniel Goldin


What else can I eat?

The little monster is hungry. What can they eat? A slice of pizza But the monster is STILL hungry, so they gobble up the plate, the pizza box, the fridge...until the only thing left is the child reading the book. Burp

This adorable board book will make the young picky eaters and food lovers in your life giggle at the absurdity of eating inedible things. Toddlers will love hollering along with the repeated text of "I'm still hungry. What can I eat?" until they squeal with delight when the insatiable monster finally notices them

★ "A read-aloud delight for tots and caregivers alike...Lighthearted and wholly engaging nonsense of the first order." - Kirkus Reviews, starred review for Potato on a Bike

"Gravel captures humor and heart in a simple dialogue between the goofy aquamarine monster and apathetic child. The contrasting pairing provides a classic setup, and a heartwarming resolution brings satisfaction to the hilarious exchange." -Booklist for I Am Scary
