The Incredible Book Eating Boy

By Maryam Master, based on the book by Oliver Jeffers published by HarperCollins Children’s Publishers; Directed by Frank Newman



Oliver Jeffers’ bestselling picture book comes to life on stage for children 3-8 and their families in this premiere 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 this quirky, beautiful, much loved story to life on stage. It’s good enough to eat!
