What Benny likes is burgers. He piles burgers into his mouth by the handful. His mom warns him, "If you don't watch out, you'll turn into a burger one day." That's exactly what happens, and soon Benny is being chased by hungry dogs, mad cows, and mischievous boys. Download and start listening now!

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 faelinwolf | 12/17/2013

    " This book made me laugh. It reminded me of how my grandma used to tell me that I ate so much of a particular thing that I would turn into it. :) A fun way to try to get kids to eat their veggies...or rather a more balanced diet (because they could turn into veggies too if they ate too much!). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 11/27/2013

    " I'm anxious to share this with the pre-k through 2nd grade groups during our summer reading program this year. I love the idea of the boy turning into what he eats and the consequences that followed. This book made me smile. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 11/13/2013

    " Made me laugh. Light and cute. About a boy who eats so many burgers he turns into a burger and all the animals and kids chase him because they want to eat him. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dolly | 11/2/2013

    " A funny book to read for the picky eaters in your life. Our girls thought it was great. The illustrations are silly and the narrative is humorous and repetitive. We've read this one a couple of times. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marie | 10/22/2013

    " Moral of the story for kids: Eat a well rounded diet of vegetables AND burgers/etc. It was ok not the best I've ever read but still interesting. "

About the Narrator

Carine Montbertrand is an award-winning narrator of dozens of audiobooks. When she first started working in the 1990s, she sounded younger than her years and specialized in children’s and young adult titles. Since then she has expanded to fiction for adults and has recorded everything from murder mysteries to fantasy and inspirational titles. She is adept with dialects and accents, voicing characters from countries around the world. She also specializes in English language titles with a French flavor, as she is half French. With her audiobooks, she has the opportunity to tell wonderful stories while finding voices for men, women, children, and sometimes ghosts and extraterrestrials.
