The Boy with Eyes the Size of Miami Football Stadium by Andrew Gilmore

The Boy with Eyes the Size of Miami Football Stadium is a charming children's picture story about Kevin Eckleburg, a young boy, who is having a bad Saturday. His parents take him to a football game at Miami Stadium and things seem to be picking up - until he feels a twinge in his eye...Suddenly, his eyes start growing, and in a matter of minutes poor Kevin is the new owner of a gigantic pair of eyes. Those spheres grew, grew and grew...Only when they touched the rim of the stadium did the orbs give up and stick there like a camel nearly through the eye of a needle. It's up to Kevin's toys, led by his favourite bear, to save him from a miserable future...The book, which is illustrated with bright, acrylic paintings by author Andrew, is inspired by the paintings of Clive Barker and the drawings of Tim Burton. It will appeal to children from 3-7 years old.
