I Just Ate My Friend

By Heidi McKinnon, Allen & Unwin, 2017.

‘I just ate my friend. He was a good friend. But now he is gone. Would you be my friend?’

Cover of a book showing a yellow cartoon face with large white eyes in the night with starsI think your child will love I Just Ate My Friend! This hilarious and quirky little book will delight readers of all ages. Even the grown-ups will have a giggle!

The main character ate his friend and is searching for a new friend, but what will happen when he does find a new friend?

I have it on good authority that the author has never actually eaten any of her friends, nor does she recommend it.
