Synopsis

Harold's Hungry Eyes by Kevin Waldron, Meagan Bennett

A stylish depiction of the life of a food-obsessed urban dog, with hints of edible humour Like most dogs, Harold is food-obsessed; unlike most dogs, he imagines food in the most unlikely places - on buildings, cars, mailboxes, even fire hydrants! When Harold gets lost in the big city, he is overtaken by hunger and begins to see things: hot dogs on an antenna, a turkey roast in the mailbox, and toast popping out the top of a build-ing! Thankfully, Harold's hungry eyes lead him to familiar landmarks and he finds his way home...to breakfast! Created for ages 4-6 years

Reviews

Great fun for children... Harold will melt your heart. -South Wales Evening Post Executed with verve and humour... Should inspire children and their parents to look in wonder at the ordinary and extraordinary in everyday life. -Inis (Ireland) This hilariously silly book cleverly visualises everyday objects as edible items. -Financial Times Beautifully illustrated, quirky and funny, this is a real bed-time treat. -The Sun This original, funny story will delight children from four to six years old. -Huffpost Parents Combines [Waldron's] exquisite drawing skills with his engaging story-telling ability. -Irish Post Young readers will love this story... Waldron's artwork is bright and colourful with a quirky, modern use of collage. -BookTrust.org.uk A funny tale that will go down well on Christmas morning, before the real feast begins. -Absolutely Mama He hasn't eaten since breakfast! Never has a modern tragedy unfolded that was closer to my heart. As little Harold bravely wanders the jaunty streets of New York City, I see my own daily struggle. Heroes are made and lost between meals. -Inis, Reading Guide
