I Am Hungry

By Michael Rosen
Illustrated by Robert Starling

The second in a funny new series from former Children's Laureate Michael Rosen and rising star Robert Starling.

Look out, this squirrel is HUNGRY. So hungry it could eat boiled rice, chocolate mice, a gingerbread man ... even a frying pan! Is there anything it WON'T eat? A rollicking ride of increasing absurdity and imagination, this hilarious picture book captures the occasional outlandishness of toddler moods. Based on the popular poem from A Great Big Cuddle, I Am Hungry is a terrific read-aloud from the master of rhyme, Michael Rosen, coupled with brilliantly bold illustration from Robert Starling.

  • Following on from I Am Angry, this is the second of a funny new series for the very young in the Mr Men vein; watch out for Michael and Robert's next books I Am Happy and I Am Wriggly.
  • Similar books such as The Very Hungry Caterpillar have enjoyed huge success demonstrating its universal appeal.
  • The series stands apart for its very young approach: humorous rhyming couplets by one of our best-loved children's poets, and hilarious illustrations by an exciting new talent.
