Animals get hungry too! In this hungry picture book, readers follow a dinner menu up the jungle food chain as one animal eats another from one page to the next. Each hungry creature eats the last before winding on their own way into the jungle and meeting the next predator who greets them and gobbles them. All but the last apex predator, who chooses to eat without conversation!

The best thing about this book is that all of the mouths move as each creatures snaps up some dinner. If the reader flaps a page, the animals will chew. Readers will enjoy identifying the animals as they flip from page to page and learn how the law of the jungle works. The critters are all bright and comical to keep the scare factor down to a minimum. Read this book with a plate of cookies on the side table.
