I Want to Eat Your Books by Karin Lefranc and Tyler Parker was a fun read to get us in the mood for Halloween. Eric is followed by a zombie to school, but rather than a brain-sucking zombie, he’s chased by a book eating zombie. Halloween allows the dark and scary to surface in town, and Eric is scared when the zombie approaches. When the zombie eats his book, the kids and teachers are running scared and trying to save their books. From fiction to nonfiction, this zombie does not discriminate. However, teachers would prefer if this zombie kid would read the books, rather than eat them.
Once in the library, the zombie is enlightened to the power of reading. Eric hands him a book that changes his outlook. While he is a zombie, he has manners and asks that Eric read to him. This change is magical, and soon he’s devouring books in a completely new way. Someone on the paranormal wire must have heard about the goodies in the library and passed along the news, because soon the school library is attracting mummies and zombies.
I Want to Eat Your Books by Karin Lefranc and Tyler Parkeris a fun book about the power of reading, and the knowledge that books can provide. My daughter and I took to shouting, “I want to eat your books!” as the zombie made his way through the school, and by the end we were giggling. This book is sure to create bookaholics like me.
