I Just Ate My Friend

Illustrated by Heidi McKinnon

John Klassen’s I Want My Hat Back meets Lucy Ruth Cummins’s A Hungry Lion in this hilarious, deadpan story about a creature looking for a new friend after eating his last one.

A little creature is looking for a new friend, but he’s not having any luck.

Why is he looking for a new friend?

Because he ate his old one.

Heidi McKinnon delivers a hilariously macabre story with colorful illustrations and a satisfying, dry wit.
