One day Sammy Ruskin checks out this very same book, and he soon discovers that this book has an appetite for – people. GULP. Will this book ever stop eating people? And will you be next?

This book is actually very cute and funny. It is kind of nice turn of events by saying a book that has an appetite for people, instead people who have an appetite for books. The plot, like most other childrens’ books, is very simple. However, it might scare some of the little children. Though, they might become engage in the book, but since I don’t have children, I wouldn’t really know. HEH. :X

Anyways, the illustrations were very well done, and let’s say it matches the feeling and plot of the book very well. Also, you can read/see the text very well against the background. Even though there are no life lessons in this book, the book’s illustrations and plot are just meant to make you laugh and smile. :D

It is a very good children’s book, and I would recommend it for anyone. Though, it might scare some of the younger kids. :P
