Lucy Lick-Me-Not and the Day Eaters is the first in a series of fantastic tales about Lucy, a brave little girl with poisonous skin who overcomes strange situations with bizarre beasts, marvelous monsters and curious creatures.Lucy wakes up on her birthday expecting gifts and chocolate cake, but instead she finds the day has completely vanished. When she comes face-to-faceLucy Lick-Me-Not and the Day Eaters is the first in a series of fantastic tales about Lucy, a brave little girl with poisonous skin who overcomes strange situations with bizarre beasts, marvelous monsters and curious creatures.Lucy wakes up on her birthday expecting gifts and chocolate cake, but instead she finds the day has completely vanished. When she comes face-to-face with the Day Eaters, the monsters responsible for her birthday’s disappearance, she must think fast and come up with a cunning plan to stop these greedy beasts and get her birthday back before she disappears, too."A little dark and plenty humorous, this gem of a picture book will appeal to both kids and grown-ups. Children will appreciate the vibrant illustrations and the heroine’s happy-go-lucky attitude, while adults reading along will chuckle at Lucy Lick-Me-Not’s weirder, darker origin. Carmel’s rhyming prose is frothy and funny—a feat, considering that Carmel is telling the absurd tale of a girl whose skin is poisonous. The rhyming couplets work well, driving the story along while still keeping things lighthearted. Illustrator Burkmar’s drawings are vivacious and alluring, perfectly aligning with the work’s irreverent vibe; the monsters etched on the page are indeed absurd but certainly not scary enough to frighten away younger readers. This work is the first in a planned Lucy Lick-Me-Not series, and future installments of Lucy’s story will assuredly be welcomed with open arms.A charming, wildly imaginative introduction to a brave new girl." - Kirkus Reviews...

    Awesome new children's book with a great new heroine... Plus gotta love the monsters! Really like the drawings and little details you find in them when you look a bit harder. All in all a great book for kids, and big kids too.

    This is a great story for kids aged between 5-9 years old i'd say, my three kids absolutely love it, and they've wanted this as their bedtime story every night since i bought it! It's about a brave little girl (with an unusual affliction) outwitting some dim day-eating monsters - it's style reminds me of the Dr Seuss and Roald Dahl books i used to read when i was little - the rhymes make the kids laugh every time and they love the colourful illustrations and pore over the pictures while i read it to them - hope there's more of these to follow!

    I bought this book for my granddaughter and WE loved it. It is a great little story and very funny if read out loud. It reminds me of Dr. Seuss books. The birthday song is adorable and all the richly coloured illustrations are beautiful and detailed. I will be recommending this book to all my friends. More Please!

    If you're looking for a children's tale with a whimsical, dark slant, this is a perfect pick! Lucy and the characters she shares her world with are like next door neighbors to Jack Skellington and Lydia Deetz. Quite a unique story for younger ears to enjoy!

    I'm not sure what grabbed my attention first - the intriguing title or the vibrant and adorable illustrations. But what do I love the most you ask?!? This kids book has plot--yay!--so it's exciting for me to turn the pages too. Can't wait to read the next one...not sure if it's due out Halloween or Christmas but I'll be keeping an eye out for it.
