I Just Ate My Friend (HB)
The hapless monster in this picture book has got a serious (and hilarious) problem. We follow the monster as they try to find a companion to replace the one they've eaten, but it proves a difficult search. Finally they find someone who is willing to be their friend, and the two have a LOT in common - perhaps a little more than is ideal for our monster.
This delightfully simple, bold book made me lose the plot laughing. Ideal for monsters of all shapes and sizes.
I just ate my friend. He was a good friend. But now he is gone. Would you be my friend?
A hilarious story about the search for friendship and belonging...and maybe a little bit about the importance of impulse control...
from an amazing new creator.
