The Book That Eats People

Title: The Book That Eats People
Author: John Perry
Illustrator: Mark Fearing
Publisher: Tricycle Press (2009)
ISBN: 9781582462684
The author of The Book That Eats People urgently warns the reader to stay away from this book… “CAUTION! This is a book that eats people”. The book, as shown through graphic illustrations, disguises itself behind different dust jackets and lurks in libraries, and has a taste for careless children. The book leaves a trail of bones and gnawed pages behind it.
