Gregory, the Terrible Eater

Gregory, the Terrible Eater

by Mitchell Sharmat Illustrated by Ariane Dewey, Jose Aruego
This classic picture book is now available for a whole new audience in this Scholastic Bookshelf paperback edition!
Gregory isn't like most goats. Instead of indulging in delicacies like old shoes, boxes, and bottle caps, he prefers to eat fruits, vegetables, eggs, and fish. Mother Goat and Father Goat are disgusted, and after several attempts to get Gregory to eat like a proper goat, they finally take him to see Dr. Ram. But when Gregory finally develops a taste for flat tires and broken violins, he's not just eating like a goat — he's eating like a pig! Will Gregory be able to find a healthy balance before he eats everything in the house?
