Benny likes burgers. Benny loves burgers. In fact, burgers are the only food that Benny ever eats. “If you don’t watch out, you’ll turn into a burger one day,” warns his mom.

And one day, Benny does.

Hilarious, roly-poly illustrations capture Benny’s wacky transformation and the chaos that ensues. A delectable cautionary tale, this is a rollicking read-aloud that’s certain to tickle picky eaters (and their parents) everywhere.
