How to Eat a Book brings out the whimsy in all curious children. Filled with beautiful and creative illustrations made from art dioramas, the story explains to children just how my adult soul feels when lost in a book.”

Description


A whimsical picture book for kids written by debut wife and husband team Mrs. & Mr. MacLeod, children's book authors and artists. This irresistible book about books--and the way they make us feel--is set in a world bursting with charm and character. How to Eat a Book is destined to be a favorite read-aloud book for kids, families, librarians, booksellers, and educators.

Sheila sat down to eat her first book and the strangest thing happened . . . The book ate HER. One by one, cousins Sheila, Gerald, and Geraldine Grunion are eaten . . . by their books. This peculiar turn of events flings them far and wide. Sheila escapes the weight of the world entirely, while Gerald braves the wonder of seeing it up close. And Geraldine, well, Geraldine turns as terrifically terrible as she possibly can. Join the Grunions on adventures no child can resist

How to Eat a Book is a quirky, modern celebration of books--with hints of Shel Silverstein and a smattering of Edward Gorey. Fantastically illustrated with dipped pen-and-ink cutout art, photographed in a three-dimensional stage diorama, and hand colored, this debut children's picture book is a breakout hit from the talented Mrs. & Mr. MacLeod. The Grunion cousins have more stories to tell and adventures to take, each sure to be as surprising as the next.

Hardcover picture books; 48 pages; 8.5 x 10.9 in.

About the Author


Mrs. & Mr. MacLeod are children's bookmakers, living off-the-grid with their five children in the redwoods of Mendocino, California. Mrs. MacLeod received her MFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design and spent her early career as an art director in San Francisco. She combines dipped pen and ink with cut paper and light to create original illustrations. Mr. MacLeod spends a heap of time engaging with the wild in the world and has the scars to prove it. Those scars have turned into stories.
