  1. Gretchen Bernet-Ward

    Henry is a boy who likes eating books. He’s happily munching his way to becoming the smartest boy on earth when there’s an eruption…well, you’ll see. Award-winning Oliver Jeffers’ concept is clever and the plot madly appealing. The illustrations are unique and have the appearance of a well-used notebook. The story could be scary but is handled in an adventurous way with Henry supported by believable characters and abundant action. GBW.
