And the more he eats, the smarter he getshe'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?

With a stunning new artistic style and a die-cut surprise, Oliver Jeffers celebrates the joys of reading in this charming and quirky picture book. It's almost good enough to eat.
