Mr. Fox #65533;devours#65533; books #65533; literally!Meet Mr. Fox, who loves books so much that every time he finishes one, he eats it (with a little salt and pepper, of course)! His insatiable appetite drives him to seek more and more books, until one day, he discovers the local library, where he can #65533;devour#65533; books to his heart#65533;s content. Eventually, the librarian catches him #65533;sampling#65533; from the collection and bans him from the library. Down on his luck, the crafty Mr. Fox must find other ways to satisfy his cravings. His attempt to rob the local bookstore, however, ends badly. Arrested for stealing, Mr. Fox lands in jail, where he discovers a surprising way to satisfy his literary cravings (and become rich and famous).With its deft combination of humor and whimsy, The Fox Who Ate Books is a tongue-in-cheek approach to promote a love of books and reading. The ever-inventive, wily Mr. Fox is the perfect anti-hero whose antics are guaranteed to make young readers laugh, while the play on words will delight older children.

I thought that Oliver Jeffers' 'The Incredible Book Eating Boy' ate a lot of books! I was wrong. This fox consumes way more titles than the Book Eating Boy. He even sells his furniture to get more books to eat! Mr. Fox is soon banned from the public library because of his terrible habit. A wonderful and silly read aloud for book lovers!
