Description

One little boy watches as all sorts of animals are swallowed up by a very hungry anaconda.

This romping, rhyming novelty book is full of odd animals and yucky flap reveals. One little boy watches as all sorts of animals are swallowed up by a very hungry anaconda. But if that anaconda swallows a boy, an alligator, a stork, a piranha, a frog, a skink, and a tick, the question is . . . will she be sick? (Spoiler alert—yes!)


About the Author

Jane Clarke is the author of more than seventy books for young children, including Who Woke the Baby? She enjoys visiting schools and loves animals, country walks, fossil hunts, meeting up with her sons and their families in the U.K. and U.S., and having fun with her grandchildren.

Emma Dodd was brought up in a family of artists, and from as far back as she can remember she has wanted to be an illustrator. She studied graphic design and illustration at Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design and has worked extensively in advertising, as an editor, and in book illustration. She is the illustrator of Giles Andreae's I Love My Mummy, which won the Booktrust Best Book For Babies award in 2010. Among Emma’s favorite things in life are surfing with her kids, punctuality, and Scrabble. Things she cannot abide include heights, paté, and children who complain that they are bored. “How can you ever be bored,” she says, “when you can always draw a picture?”
