I Just Ate My Friend

I just ate my friend. He was a good friend. But now he is gone. Would you be my friend?

This hilarious story from an enormously talented new creator, Heidi McKinnon, will make you laugh out loud. The search for friendship and belonging is something everyone can relate to - from the very young to the very old.

I Just Ate My Friend is a deceptively simple story, that whilst quirky and funny on the surface, can be used as a springboard to discuss the importance of impulse control, emotions such as regret, sadness, happiness and the challenges of negotiating friendships. 

The colourful and bold illustrations are visually stunning and musician Tim Rogers' reading is simply sublime. 

Watch out for the incredibly funny surprise ending!
