The Incredible Book-Eating Boy

Post Category - Fun + GamesFun + Games

Oliver Jeffers’ bestselling picture book comes to life on stage for children 3-8 and their families in this acclaimed Australian adaptation.

Henry loves books. But Henry doesn’t like to read books, he likes to eat them. Big books, picture books, reference books . . . if it has pages, Henry chews them up and swallows (but red ones are his favourite). And the more he eats, the smarter he gets. He’s on his way to being the smartest boy in the world! But one day he feels sick to his stomach. And the information is so jumbled up inside, he can’t digest it! Can Henry find a way to enjoy books without using his teeth?

A cast of three use song, movement and beautiful puppetry to bring Oliver Jeffers’ quirky, beautiful, much loved story to life on stage. It’s good enough to eat!

Tickets are available from or by calling 31 288 288.
