March 24, 2014


The most gruesome thing I EVER did was when I was a little kid.

I was SO hungry on that day, I swallowed all that came my way…[/box]

The story takes you on a journey down memory lane from an old man fondly remembering the day when he was the boy who ate everything.

Starting with toast and cake you soon what the boy start to eat some unusual items including a brush complete with hair, however soon the grumbling in his tum moves further south and well I don’t want to spoil the story for you… needless to say the children (and probably most adults) will find it hilarious and results in the then boy getting grounded for 80 years!

Boo Roo and Tigger Too’s thoughts…

Roo and Tigger (me too) thought that this story was soooooo funny. Watching them as I told them of the latest thing the boy was eating, turning their noses up and commenting ‘he can’t eat that!’ was priceless. Now of course the ending to the story is quite frankly one of my favourites, the illustrations that accompany it are amazing and really do bring the story to life.

With a RRP of £6.99 it is with every penny and will be story that you read time and time again.

Available direct from Top That PublishingAmazon and all other good book retailers.

    This sounds like a great book. I really believe children’s books should be fun to spark a life long love of reading.
