Book Description

6 Aug 2009
The greedy python eats every creature he comes across. From a tiny mouse to an enormous elephant, the eaten animals eventually befriend one another in the belly of the snake where they team up and kick the inside of the python until he spits them out. Rather than learning his lesson, the python sticks to his greedy ways - when he spots his own tail, and mistakes it for food, he swallows himself and disappears!

A lovely simple book with a good story. As usual, a good moral backing too. The children love these board books and enjoy being able to read them for themselves.

The Greedy Python is another quirky selection that consumes the amazement of children. It gives them the opportunity to further their knowledge of exotic creatures and other species of wildlife, the children also find the story very entertaining in terms of characters dealing with the consequences of their overindulgence or in the case of The Greedy Python refusing to learn from their own mistakes and continuing to suffer as a result of blissful ignorance!
