Description

"Magoon's exuberant art recalls classic characters, most particularly Max in his wolf suit...Fanciful pretend play for the dragon-slaying preschooler." --Kirkus Reviews

"The dark color palette and mischievous nature of the text are reminiscent of Jon Klassen's I Want My Hat Back (2011)--albeit with a different final outcome." --Booklist

From the award-winning author of Warning: Do Not Open This Book and beloved illustrator Scott Magoon comes a suspenseful and darkly funny new picture book about a creature 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?
