Synopsis: Hungry Thing and his daughter visit a school and ask for flamburgers, bellyjeans, and blownuts to eat.

From School Library Journal: Kindergarten-Grade 2-- The Hungry Thing, a pink dinosaurlike creature who wears a sign that says "Feed Me," is back. With him is a small Hungry Thing wearing a sign that says " Me Too." They cause quite a stir on the school playground, and their requests for unusual foods such as flamburgers, bellyjeans, and blownuts cause confusion and some zany guesses from the teachers. Luckily, the children are able to rhyme their way to the true translations. When it's time for them to leave, the small Thing begins to cry, until the children come up with a way to appease her. The playful rhymes and the friendly but gluttonous beasts make this an appealing book. Children will enjoy the grown-ups' ridiculous guesses as well as the absurd pictures that accompany them. The cartoon illustrations, done in soft dreamlike colors, are not remarkable but adequate: the adults in their long flowing robes and towering hats are rather frightening, and the children have a blank-eyed Orphan Annie look. The imaginary beasts, however, are delightful, and the Hungry Thing is sure to win some new fans. The book's creative use of rhymes should make it especially useful in language-arts classes .
