Henry imagines that if he keeps eating at his current pace, he could eventually become the smartest person on earth. Unfortunately, he starts to get sick from eating so many books, and everything he has learned becomes all jumbled up. The Incredible Book Eating Boy

Discovered through fabulous Jennifer and her daughter P.
