Burger Boy

By Alan Durant
Illustrated by Mei Matsuoka

First paperback publication of this bestselling modern fable about a little boy who likes fast food much too much.

Benny liked burgers. Benny LOVED burgers. Burgers were the only food that Benny would eat. "You'll turn into a burger one day," his mum warned. And one day, Benny did. And that is just the start of a madcap chase in which the hapless Benny is pursued across the countryside by a mob of hungry dogs, boys and angry cows. An hilarious cautionary tale with a twist from a winning author and artist team.

  • Winner of the Portsmouth Book Award 2007 (Picture Book category)
  • This light-hearted take on a highly topical theme is bound to get the book talked about.
  • Alan Durant wrote the text for Debi Gliori's Always and Forever, which was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Award.
