Publisher Comments:

A folktale for insatiable readers

Grandpa finds a piece of clay and fashions it into a boy. As soon as the clay boy dries out by the fire, he jumps up and cries, "I am here! I am hungry!" He eats and eats, and he grows and grows. And before you know it, the clay boy is a giant threatening to devour the whole village. Will a feisty white goat become the next meal — or the ruination of the greedy clay boy's appetite? Mirra Ginsburg engagingly retells this Russian folktale, and Jos. A. Smith's superb paintings bring it all vividly to life.

Synopsis:

An insatiable boy made of clay devours everything in sight until a fiesty goat ruins his appetite. Vibrant paintings invigorate this retelling of a Russian folktale.
