I'd Really Like to Eat a Child (Picture Book) by Dorothee De Monfreid,Sylviane Donnio



Instead what he really wants is to eat a child! Alas when he meets a real child, hi. While I’d Really Like To Eat A Child is a silly story with a wacky premise - everyone knows that crocodiles don’t eat bananas! - there’s something admirable about Achilles’s youthful idealism and single-minded dedication to achieving his goal.

A scrawny little crocodile wants the opportunity to bite off more than he can chew. He's tired of bananas; today he'd like to eat a child. by Tiffany, 2009-06-02 - Goodreads I saw this book recommended at the bookstore and then had to endure it during story time with my 3-year-old at the museum. It's bizarre and frightening - nightmarish stuff, really.

I'd Really Like to Eat . .has been added to your Cart. DOROTHÉE DE MONFREID began to write and illustrate her ideas with colored pencils back in grade school. Now that she is bigger, she makes her career as an author-illustrator, writing stories published in France about cats, bunnies, elephants, stinky monsters, and even cake. Basically it's an alligator saying he'd like to eat a child (in those words only) for about 10 pages, and then a little girl "boops" him on the nose because he is little, and the story is over. I thought there would be funny lines, or hilarious scenarios, but there wasn't :( The book is kid appropriate, there's no swearing, etc.

by Sylviane Donnio & illustrated by Dorothée de Monfreid & translated by Leslie Martin. The slightly grisly story might not appeal to everyone, but de Monfried’s Feiffer-esque watercolors most certainly will. The crocs are expressive, and the dark-skinned girl is adorably self-confident. On the whole, a nice addition to storytimes about finicky eaters. Pub Date: April 24th, 2007.

Achilles’ repeated refrain is Today, I’d really like to eat a child. Mama and Papa moan and weep and worry. Their poor baby won’t eat. Well, you know what happens when you don’t eat your breakfast, right? As Donnio points out, you begin to feel strange and weak all over. So, Achilles heads out for a nice swim. And this is when we come to the aforesaid and amusing moment of fatal retribution (well, okay, no worries: It’s not quite fatal). Needless to say probably, there’s a little girl there, playing at the riverbank by herself. ‘Yippee! Finally, I’m going to eat a child,’ Achilles.

This made a lovely gift. People who have young children always love books about children being eaten by reptiles.

My son In first grade, was a VIP of the week and had the chance to choose a book that I would come in and read for his class. He chose this one! All of the kids absolutely loved it. Would totally buy it again and I’m interested in seeing what other books this author has written as well! It’s a funny little story!

This cute little book made my 5yr old boy smile and giggle. When I asked what he learned from the book, he said "to always eat a healthy breakfast to grow big and strong". I am happy with that. I thought the ending was cute but abrupt. It left us wanting more - again, a good thing from a book. Great, quick read for bedtime.

That isn't this book. This book is, in my opinion, bad for both. Bit dark and dull for the lil ones, and really boring for the taller ones. This was a recommendation based on our purchase and appreciation for the All My Friends Are Dead books. Those are fun. This is early American toilet paper that was made too late.

My daughter (3years old) is obsesses with all things alligator/crocodile. This boom is so cute
It has colorful drawings. It is about Achilles the little alligator who refuses to eat his healthy food BC he would rather eat a child, but when he goes down to the water and he sees a little girl he wants to eat, but he is so small, that she just picks him up and tosses him in the water. After that encounter he decides he should eat the healthy food his parents have for him so he can grow big and strong. We also bought the Melissa and Doug alligator sleeping bag to be her Achilles, which made this boom even better!

I had really high hopes for this book, but it's not funny. Basically it's an alligator saying he'd like to eat a child (in those words only) for about 10 pages, and then a little girl "boops" him on the nose because he is little, and the story is over. I thought there would be funny lines, or hilarious scenarios, but there wasn't :(

The book is kid appropriate, there's no swearing, etc.

My 3-year-old girl adores this book! And so do we - her parents. It's cute, fun, a bit irreverent... but it's also a nice subtle little lesson for picky eaters. Our daughter has actually eaten bites of things she previously avoided because she said she wants to grow bigger like Achilles does! That's an added success I wasn't expecting.
Bought one for my niece over a year ago. Visited recently and it's still on top of the stack of books they read. That's a win in my book!

We bought a second copy for friends that just had their first child. The classics are great, but everyone gets those.
