The Day Louis Got Eaten When Louis gets eaten up by a Gulper his big sister Sarah knows she has to act fast and she sets off in hot pursuit But rescuing a boy from a Gulper's tummy isn't so simple especially when other strange and scary creatures are looking for their dinner too Journal Not really sure what message I am supposed to get from the book If you have a six year old in your life you should really get this book My six year old son ADORES it and my husband and I love it too It's funny clever and exciting there are fabulous details in the illustrations and it reminds me in a very good way of Mercer Mayer's classic picturebooks One Monster After Another and Professor Wormbog in Search for the Zipperump a Zoo two books that both my son and I adore It has really lit up my son's imagination he's drawing picture after picture right now of the creatures in the book and other creatures that might exist in their worldWe checked out a copy from the library but my son is so in love with it he's asked us to buy a copy to keep and we absolutely will It's one I'm looking forward to sharing with my younger son too when he's old enough and it's definitely one of the select picturebooks that we'll be saving to pass on to any grandchildren afterwards Imaginative monsters creative bike modifications reciprocal sibling heroism and an awesome picture of crawling into a series of stomachs What doesn't this book have I read it for storytime and it went well but it would go even better as a book to read at home because the illustrations have lots of things you can talk about that aren't written down I like that the girl is the main hero of the book but her brother also gets his chance to step up and save her That way it's about siblings looking out for each other than it is about a heroic boy or girl and both boys and girls can identify with a same gender hero in the book Normally I wouldn't give a crap about kids having a same gender hero but and kids I talk to are giving boy or girl labels to what I thought were unisex stories so I appreciate that this story has a hero for boy and girl listeners I'm not doing it justice by analyzing it so hard It's a fun silly story with lots of adventure and ingenuity One of the first books to be taken out after reading it at storytime I'm a big fan of picture books where someone gets eaten I'm also a big fan of picture books with monsters with silly names This one is excellent on both counts
