"Magoon's exuberant art recalls classic characters, most particularly Max in his wolf suit...Fanciful pretend play for the dragon-slaying preschooler." -- Kirkus Reviews

"The dark color palette and mischievous nature of the text are reminiscent of Jon Klassen's I Want My Hat Back (2011)--albeit with a different final outcome." -- Booklist

From the award-winning author of Warning: Do Not Open This Book! and beloved illustrator Scott Magoon comes a suspenseful and darkly funny new picture book about a creature who resists the urge to eat the animals that wander into his cave...at least for now!

Theodore thinks everything is a potential meal. Lucky for the bird, wolf, and tiger, who pass by his cave, Theodore isn't hungry...yet. But then something new approaches. A boy. Has Theodore found a new favorite food? Or something more?

This short book has a simple premise that my 3-year old understands, pictures that make my 5-year old laugh, and a couple places that are really clever for the adult in the room.

What lurks in the dark? Is it scary? Will it gobble you up? This book offers a look into what REALLY happens when you go into a cave to find what's living in there... And it gives a wonderful lesson on how to avoid getting eaten! Super-cute with a surprising, useful and FUN message.
