In the food chain, no one is safe! "I will eat you," says the fish to the tadpole, but...
when the double-gatefold is opened, a menacing eel is revealed behind the tadpole—and an even more menacing heron behind the eel! "I will eat you," says the snail to the mushroom, but again, a double-gatefold shows a frog springing for the snail, and a hungry badger close behind the frog.

Delightful illustrations, an intriguing layout, sturdy paper engineering, and fascinating front and back matter make this book perfect for sharing the concept of food chains to young readers, who will enjoy both guessing what might be a predator, and opening the gatefold to reveal the answer.

A stunning and educational double-gatefold introduction to the food chain in different habitats around the world.

Praise For I Will Eat You!

"Rotated 90 degrees and read top to bottom, each spread opens with a simply rendered seascape, woodland, pine forest, or other natural setting in which sharp-eyed viewers are challenged to spot subtle signs of a set of predators and prey."—Kirkus Reviews
