John, Jory. Illustrated by Bob Shea. I Will Chomp You! Random House, 2015. $17.99. ISBN 978-0-385-38986-0. Unp. Ages 1-8. P8 Q8
The author engages the reader by sayin that if they turn any more pages the monster is going to chomp you. The characters are simple colors and graphic shapes with big colorful words on the pages. As you keep turning pages he keeps yelling warnings. The little bunnies on the pages are scared and hiding. The words are funny as the monster says… please put the book down … go outside and play kid, etc. The monster keeps missing and chomping. I can just hear the children laugh when they read this story. The monster tries one last trick … he wants to share his cakes and asks the kids to get close to the page to taste the cakes. He of course misses again but asks the children not to read the book again.
