Harry's tummy begins to rumble and he starts to howl with hunger. His mother rushes to him with a snack but he calls for more! Blueberries, cookies, and he still wants more. He toddles to the fridge - tips it on its side and gobbles it all right down. He heads outside, eats the flowers, the hose and the mailbox. And he is still hungry! What will it take to get this baby to stop eating everything in sight?

Expect delighted expressions when Harry tips the refrigerator on its side. The book moves fr

Harry is a hungry baby! He devours food and eventually eats his way through his father's car and on to the moon. I like the sounds and the fact that kids can relate to being extremely hungry. Book ends with Harry falling asleep--only to wake up being hungry again in time for breakfast. Great for preschoolers.

This tale of a hungry baby who eats everything from blueberries to bridges to the sky is great fun. It was read multiple times to the kids, who enjoyed the bold artwork and amusing antics of the baby.

I really enjoyed this book, Harry is very hungry little boy, and when momma doesn't feed Harry fast enough he goes on an eating spree. My grandsons want me to read this to them over and over again, they love repeating all the parts where Harry eats different things.

My kids really enjoyed Harry eating the world...once. They raved about it, but are totally uninterested in me reading it again. The illustration is really fun, but the story itself is one-dimensional.

One of son's favorite books to read right now and he just turned 4. He likes thumbing through the pages and narrating how Harry gets so hungry that he goes around the neighborhood eating the house, school, highway and bridge.

For having a child that doesn't eat well, I LOVE Harry! This little guy eats everything and everything else plus! At the very end, he finally goes to sleep, and my little boy loves that part. Fun book to read and see everything that Harry eats, from the sky, to the car, to the bridge.

Baby Harry is very expressive as he eats everything in his path.

This would be a fun read aloud for a class. This baby is so hungry he eats everything from cookies to a mountain! It would be a great start to an independent writing activity.

I love the illustrations and the size of this book. It would work wonderfully in a food storytime. Ages 2+

Big on hyperbole, cute illustrations, and certainly would be enjoyed by preschoolers/younger elementary ages.
