The Boy Who Ate the World (and the Girl Who Saved It)Book - 2008
When the island of Japan is all that's left of the world, Herman confesses that he might burst if he eats another bite.
"You'd burst?" Sarah asks
"Absolutely." Herman replies.
An idea is born. Sarah realizes that it just might be possible to restore the world with a loud WHOOSH and only a few teeth marks as proof of what might have been. Pierre Pratt's inventive illustrations are the perfect accompaniment to this entertaining warning about the dangers of global over-consumption.
