Oliver Jeffers’ bestselling picture book comes to life on stage for children 3+ and their families in this premiere Australian adaptation.

Description

Suitable for children 3+

Like many children, Henry loves books. But Henry doesn't like to read books, he likes to eat them. Big books, picture books, reference books . . . if it has pages, Henry chews them up and swallows (but red ones are his favourite). And the more he eats, the smarter he gets. He's on his way to being the smartest boy in the world! But one day he feels sick to his stomach. And the information is so jumbled up inside, he can't digest it! Can Henry find a way to enjoy books without using his teeth?

The Incredible Book Eating Boy  celebrates the joys of reading in this charming and quirky stage adaptation of the much-loved picture book by Oliver Jeffers. It's almost good enough to eat.
