I Am Hungry (Hardcover)
When you’re hungry—really hungry—what exactly could you eat? From the delicious to the daffy, Michael Rosen’s rhyming read-aloud offers a tasting menu for the silliest toddler connoisseurs among us.
Look out! This squirrel is hungry. So hungry, it could eat . . . everything! Just how hungry is this squirrel? He could eat boiled rice, chocolate mice, a gingerbread man . . . even a frying pan! Is there anything he won’t eat? In a laugh-out-loud ride of imagination and hilarity, Michael Rosen’s charming rhymes and Robert Starling’s vibrant, bold illustrations capture the absurdity and occasional outlandishness of toddler moods. Based on the popular poem from Michael Rosen’s collection A Great Big Cuddle: Poems for the Very Young, I Am Hungry will satisfy the read-aloud appetites of parents and children alike.
