I Will Not Eat You

by Casey Maynard on November 9th, 2016

From the author of Warning: Do Not Open this Book, Please, Open this Book, and Chicken in Space comes a brand new adventure! I Will Not Eat You by Adam Lehrhaupt, illustrated by Scott Magoon, is a delight and perfect for this late-onset autumn. It has everything you could possibly want as the days get shorter: mystery, suspense, chase scenes and happy endings (maybe?).
The dark color palette hints at the story’s capacity for equally colored humor and continually builds suspense concerning who our not-so-hungry protagonist might be. It is only when the stakes are highest that the true identity of the creature in the cave is revealed.  For more fun hints as to the identity of this stranger, check out the book trailer below, or better yet, the book!

I chose to read only books from our new shelves today, which was a great reminder that while repetition is a great way for kids to learn, they also need to keep hearing new words and concepts to keep expanding their vocabularies.
