“From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2–This rollicking British import takes the format of The Gingerbread Boy and turns it into a cautionary tale. Young Benny has never met a burger he didn’t like; in fact, he will eat nothing else. After a steady diet of beef patties on a bun, he becomes one and finds himself being chased across the countryside by a pack of dogs, a herd of cows, and a group of hungry boys. He is finally saved from being a sideshow attraction at a burger franchise by his wise mother, who plies him with fruits and vegetables. The story is saved from a didactic and predictable ending by the warning that Benny should take care not to eat just vegetables, lest he finds himself transformed again. The simple lines and lively colors of the acrylic and colored-pencil illustrations add to the kid appeal. A fun addition to any library collection, Burger Boy perfectly suits a picky-eater-themed storytime that includes Russell Hoban’s Bread and Jam for Frances (HarperCollins, 1964) or Mary Ann Hoberman’s The Seven Silly Eaters(Harcourt, 1997).–Rita Hunt Smith, Hershey Public Library, PA

Burger #255 – Constellation


Star Light, star bright…

On a clear night, gaze into the dark sky and see the burger in the stars, otherwise known as “Burger Major”. Guarded over by “Ursa Major” and “Ursa Minor”, there is plenty of burger to be shared, and all the other constellations are thankful. ([])
