About the Author

Laurel Snyder is the author of many books for children, including the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award-winning Charlie & Mouse. She lives and writes in a small yellow house in Atlanta, Georgia, which she shares with her husband and two sons.

Chuck Groenink hails from a village in the north of the Netherlands, where he spent his formative years climbing trees, drawing, reading, and cycling. He lives in Syracuse, New York.


"[Hungry Jim's] glorious gustatory rampage is a lot of fun. Groenick's illustrations provide a witty counterpart to the text. a storytime treat. If you dare."--Horn Book Magazine
"Rightly and properly dedicated to Maurice Sendak . . . A reassuring promise that it's OK to be beastly."--Kirkus Reviews
"In this clever tribute to Maurice Sendak, Snyder and Groenink gleefully subvert picture book norms by embracing the beastliest behavior."--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
"Use this at story hour and expect giggles, shrieks, and groans."--Booklist
"Part Kafkaesque tale and part homage to Maurice Sendak, as noted in the dedication, this book is a pure delight. A definite celebration of his style and not an outright copy, this is a must-have for fans of Sendak who adore tales of wildness; sure to have readers young and old giggling with joy."--School Library Journal
