Book Review: I Really Want to Eat a Child by Sylviane Donnio - Reviewed by Sheepcoate (27 Jul 2013)
I Really Want to Eat a Child is a cover and title that is hard to pass up.
The story is about a young crocodile who is getting sick of eating bananas. Bananas are his staple diet. He eats them for breakfast, lunch and tea. He turns around to his parents one day and says I want to eat a child! So off he goes in search for a child to eat.
Of course he soon finds out that this is more difficult than first thought. The story is cute and funny and Im sure there is a moral in the story somewhere.
Author Biography - Sylviane Donnio
Sylviane Donnio began writing her first children's book at age eight, but stopped after about a dozen lines, promising herself she'd try again when she was bigger. After studying law and becoming a mother of three children, she kept her promise. She lives in France with her family and has written many books for children. Dorothee de Monfreid began to write stories and illustrate them with coloured pencils when she was at school. Now that she is bigger, she is a full-time author-illustrator, writing stories for French children about cats, bunnies, elephants, stinky monsters and even cake!
