Ignore everything you've ever been told about what NOT to do to books; Don’t Eat This Book is no ordinary book. Splat it, soak it, rip it, wear it, tear it, bling it, camouflage it, glue it, break it, stick it, bury it, whack it . . . Do whatever you want to it – just don't eat it!

The antidote to activity books, Don't Eat this Book is for absolutely everyone: boys and girls, young and old. The only book you’ll need this holiday, it is guaranteed to enthral as imagination and creativity are unleashed in the most interesting and unexpected ways . . .


A must-have for the holidays

Sarah Kingsford, Sunday Express

For those of a rebellious nature or children with a book phobia, this book conquers the conundrum of the boring book. This is a great beginner book for reluctant readers . . . it will engage the hidden imagination and creativity of all ages. This book flies in the face of convention; children are encouraged to splat it, soak it, rip it, wear it, tear it, bling it, break it, whack it – almost anything – just don’t eat it. A great book for those wet afternoons – with plenty of choice for both boys and girls. It can be returned to time and time again.

Martina Needham, Inis

Full of hilarious and creative things to draw and do . . . hours of fun


My kids have loved it . . . There is no other book like it!


This book will get drawn all over and it will be absolutely adored. It hugely encourages a child’s creativity and really brings books to life

Becky Goddard-Hill, family-budgeting.co.uk
