The Day Louis Got Eaten

Publisher: Andersen Press

Review

Fardell creates a variation on the Old Woman who swallowed a fly in this hilarious adventure involving Sarah and her little brother Louis, who unfortunately gets eaten by a Gulper, who in turn gets eaten by another four monsters.

Sarah resourcefully follows each monster from page to page with suitable adaptations to her bike to enable her to pass through a variety of extreme landscapes. Finally it is Louis whose courage conquers the hungry monsters!

Filled with detail, each spread can be interrogated by readers, and conveys a sense of danger, energy and humour. Several pages are split into ingenious panels which move the visual narrative swiftly along, while the materials for Sarah’s bicycle-engineering feats are tucked away in the images.
