Synopsis

Achilles is tired of eating bananas every day. What he really wants is to eat a child - but mum and dad aren't being co-operative! What an idea! They try sausage and chocolate cake, but Achilles is not interested. Will Achilles finally be able to eat a child - or is he just a little too little!

'An amusing story with wonderfully expressive illustrations.' - The Independent
'The appetizing mixture of domestic breakfast concerns and fierce child-eating monsters will leave children hungry for more.' - Publishers Weekly

Great fun and an obvious read aloud

Bringing a welcome touch of dry Gallic humour to the sometimes-too-worthy picture book market... the rhythmic repetition of this naughty catchphrase is a joy to read aloud...An instant favourite!
