About the Author
Richard Buckley is a much-traveled English writer of both prose and poetry. He has lived in New York, Paris, and London, but his present home is in Cheltenham, England, where he has lived for the past thirty years, bringing up two sons with his wife (and muse) Elfie. His books for children include The Dutiful Penguin, The Foolish Tortoise (with Eric Carle), and The Bird Who Couldn’t Fly (with Alex Williams).
Eric Carle was born in Syracuse, New York, and moved to Germany with his parents when he was six years old. He studied at the Academy of Graphic Arts in Stuttgart before returning to the United States, where he worked as a graphic designer for The New York Times and later as art director for an international advertising agency. His first two books, 1,2,3 to the Zoo and The Very Hungry Caterpillar, gained him immediate international recognition. The latter title, now considered a modern classic, has sold more than 30 million copies and has been translated into forty-eight languages. Eric Carle and his wife, Barbara, divide their time between the mountains of North Carolina and the Florida Keys.

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!
