Amazon Description

Mo, a little boy who doesn't want to eat his dinner, turns himself into a series of ever-expanding monsters that eat virtually everything except stringbeans and cheese souffle, including math teachers and entire countries

One Potato Review

The boy of the title devours his parents, his country, indeed everything which has not been placed before him, and meanwhile reveals himself to be a monster living within a monster with a disposable head. This was never going to be pretty (Drescher’s grotesque puppets will alert you to that), still what’s impressive is just how far this author is willing to indulge his delightfully awful taste.
