HARRY HUNGRY by Steve Salerno

hungry-harryBaby Harry, whose stomach constantly growls, gobbles up Mama’s snack, only to cry “More!”  After eating blueberries, and alphabet cereal, he devours the entire fridge and continues to eat the flowerbed, garden hose and mailbox. The silliness continues as Harry devours the car, the neighbor’s house and the school.  Not yet done, he continues his binge, eating the highway, mountain, and taking a chunk out of the sky until, finally, he burps, and falls asleep. Harry’s parents put him gently to bed and he wakes up ready for breakfast.  Harry’s insatiable and absurd appetite should delight readers and listeners, adults as well as children. The depiction of infant Harry, with his oval shaped head and wide-open mouth, clad only in a diaper, adds to the humor. Sure to be a hit in story time.
