Books aren't for eating / Carlie Sorosiak ; illustrated by Manu Montoya.

Sorosiak, Carlie, (author.). Montoya, Manu, (illustrator.).


"Leopold the goat owns a delightful bookstore, and he has a talent for matching his customers with the ideal book-an adventure story for the girl in the rain boots, a novel about gnomes for the man who loves to laugh, and a book of birds for the woman in the feathered hat. But one day, another goat arrives and proceeds to eat every book Leopold offers. Can Leopold find just the right one to tempt this reluctant reader? This funny, charming tale of the transformative power of books is a celebration of that first special story that sparks a child's love of reading"-- Provided by publisher.
