The Incredible Book Eating Boy

Henry loves books, but not like you and I love books. Henry loves to EAT books, and better still, he realises the more books he eats, the smarter he gets. However a book-eating diet isn’t the healthiest of habits, as Henry soon finds out…

Bootworks Theatre’s adaptation of Oliver Jeffers’s award-winning children’s book brings Henry and his voracious appetite for books to delightful life with puppets, film, animation and an enchanting soundtrack. For one child and an accompanying parent or guardian at a time, this five-minute show offers a magical theatre experience for children and their grown ups.

Incredible Book Eating Boy is just brilliant, a real five minute wonder. One of my most enjoyable Fringe experiences.
