I Will Not Eat You by Adam Lehrhaupt

I Will Not Eat You

I Will Not Eat You has been nominated for the 2018 Minnesota North Star Award and 2018 Buckaroo Book Award.

With several humorous twists, lots of imaginative play, and illustrations reminiscent of Maurice Sendak's in Where the Wild Things Are, this is a surefire read-aloud hit. VERDICT Highly recommended for storytime and one-on-one sharing. — School Library Journal

Fanciful pretend play for the dragon slaying preschooler. — Kirkus

From the award-winning author of Warning: Do Not Open This Book! and Please, Open This Book! comes a suspenseful and darkly funny new picture book about Theodore, 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?

Check out this awesome post by Scott Magoon where he gives background and insight into his creative process and how he created the illustrations.
