The story is about a python that just keeps eating every animal he sees. The python wants to eat everything and is super greedy. Then he gets so big, he finally stops. The animals inside his belly kick, twist, trying to get out. The python feels sick and has to spit all the animals out.
Instead of learning his lesson about being greedy in the act of greed he mistakes his tail for another animal and eats himself.
My kids thought his book was hilarious. They laughed everytime the python ate more. Super cute book that has to be for 5 and up. I really don't think little children would understand the humor or the lesson. At least children less than 5 years old.
Overall, a cute read that I'm glad we have on our bookshelf!

This is the perfect first baby book. The cardboard pages, brightly colored pictures, and short story keep the little one's attention.Published on January 26, 2014 by Carla H
