Like many children, Henry loves books. But Henry doesn't like to read books, he likes to eat them. Big books, picture books, reference books... if it has pages, Henry chews them up and swallows (but red ones are his favorite). And the more he eats, the smarter he gets - he's on his way to being the smartest boy in the world! But one day he feels sick to his stomach. And the information is so jumbled up inside, he can't digest it! Can Henry find a way to enjoy books without using his teeth? Oliver Jeffers celebrates the joys of reading in this picture book. It's almost good enough to eat.
