Burger Boy by Alan Durant

Book Description

Benny liked burgers. Benny LOVED burgers. Burgers were the only food that Benny would eat. "You'll turn into a burger one day," his mum warned. And one day, Benny did. And that is just the start of a madcap chase in which the hapless Benny is pursued across the countryside by a mob of hungry dogs, boys and angry cows. An hilarious cautionary tale with a twist from a winning author and artist team.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » Fans of modern twisted tales rejoice: Young Benny doesn't like vegetables, but he LOVES burgers. In fact, he eats only burgers, every day and every meal. His mom warns, "If you don't watch out, you'll turn into a burger one day." And sure enough, Benny metamorphoses into a largish hamburger. To his horror, he is suddenly the focus of a pack of hungry dogs. Escape into a field of cows turns surreal when the cows remind Benny what he's made of. Next he happens upon a group of hungry boys and so, like the Gingerbread Man, he runs over hill and dale trying to escape a string of pursuers. Eventually saved by his mom, Benny dines solely on fruits and vegetables, and his body slowly reverts to normal. He vows never again to eat another burger, but with an exclusively vegetarian diet, could Benny be in for another shape shift? Embellished with eventful illustrations that are brimming with delightful comic details, this is a tasty and off-kilter romp. (Picture book. 4-7) (Kirkus Reviews)
