Verified Purchase. This book is so good. My nearly-four-year-old absolutely delights in it, and so do I. We giggle over the names of the creatures; we pore over the clever and detailed pictures; we cheer on the brother and sister who rescue each other so cleverly.

It's one of my all time favorites, of the hundreds and hundreds of picture books I've read to my kids. We love this imaginative and and whimsical book. And, as a parent, it is delightful to see a strong female character who uses her inventive engineering skills to rescue her little brother, instead of an all-too-common helpless princess motif. Great illustrations with excellent story. One silly monster eats the next silly monster in a series of improbable events. Meanwhile, Louis is stuck in the belly of the smallest monster.
Big sister Sarah invents great contraptions to try to catch the monsters and free her brother. My 2 and 5 year old both love it. Also, Louis' big sister is a great feminist role model.

She has courage, great mechanical skill and practical clothing. Our four grandchildren, ages 3, 5, 7, and 9 years old, all will listen to me read this story. They continue to laugh out loud, even after hearing it read to them many times. As the grandparent-doing-the-reading, I love it also for the illustrations!
We love this book! WE rented it from the library and after reading it multiple times a day, I knew I had to add it to our permanent collection. A definite favorite with funny made-up words and a storyline that promotes step-by-step thinking and logic skills.

Synopsis About this title When Louis gets eaten up by a Gulper, his big sister Sarah knows she has to act fast, and she sets off in hot pursuit. Review : "A cumulative tale of gathering potency that riffs on Jonah and the Whale. A very merry, lighthearted entanglement. The story is delicious: A brother and his big sister are out in the woods, and the former gets eaten. Eaten in one gulp by a creature logically called a 'Gulper,' which is eaten, in turn, by the aptly named and hilariously drawn Grabular, Undersnatch, Spiney-Backed Guzzler and finally by a Saber-Toothed Yumper.
Sarah sets out to rescue little Louis from this parade of beasts, a feat accomplished through a bicycle ride over increasingly complicated and varied terrain, an incredibly illustrated trek through the stomachs of each animal and with the help of a small frog. Sarah finds Louis calmly ensconced in the Gulper's gullet, reading a comic book: 'I knew you'd come. The art is cartoony, in pen and ink with bright watercolors, and the book's layout borrows from comic strips as well; the narrative is cleverly visualized in a succession of softly edged panels teeming with delightful action words, like 'raar,' 'flick,' 'splosh' and 'guzzle.
Note that secret glimpse of each successive creature peeking into the previous page before it pounces. And Sarah's retooling, MacGyver style, of her bicycle to adapt to each environment: paddle boat, submarine, stilted walker. The final pages, despite the book's predatory subject, are surprisingly sweet; the siblings fly their bike now a hang glider toward a cozy cabin while the vanquished critters sulk from a safe distance.
