I also bought a pile of fantastic books for my classroom. I wasn't going to share the books on this blog, but I have to show one of them. Oliver Jeffers is a brilliant Irish author/illustrator. The Incredible Book Eating Boy is about a boy who starts devouring books and becomes really smart because everything he eats goes to his brain. Eventually, he starts getting sick and the facts become all jumbled. At this point, he starts reading books and the story has a happy ending. I love everything about this book. It's Tim Burton-esque to be sure.
The back cover actually has teeth chomp marks cut out. Nice touch.
Hope you had a fruitful thrifting day. I'm hoping for something good tomorrow.
