" 'The Ink Drinker' by Eric Sanvoisin begins with a boy whose dad owns a bookstore, but the boy hates books! One day the boy is at the store waiting for people to show up so he could spy on them. A strange man comes in, and the boy runs to a hiding place. After looking around to make sure no one is looking, the man pulls out a straw and starts drinking the book like a soda. After the man leaves, the boy checks the book. All the ink was gone! "

-- Elliot Drumm
