THE LION IS KING OF THE JUNGLE! THE GREAT WHITE SHARK IS SOVEREIGN OF THE SEA! THE TIMBER WOLF IS EMPEROR OF THE FOREST!
But… It’s lonely at the top of the food chain. It’s difficult to fit in, when plant eaters can be so cruel-just because you ate a relative of theirs that one time! What’s a carnivore to do?
“I’m not bad…eating meat is just what I do”
If you ever felt bad for that zebra being chased by the lion, this is the book for you! Carnivores are so misunderstood! I LOVED this book! It’s hilarious! I love it when I read such unique picture books! The carnivores try to fit in with the other animals – going vegetarian, wearing costumes, etc., and all with hysterical results! Everything about this book is uproariously funny – the book jacket, the end pages, ending, text, illustrations, everything! I love the emotions on faces in the illustrations! Dan Santat’s illustrations are awesome and Aaron Reynolds story is one you will want to read again and again.

I like the idea of the top-of-the-food-chain carnivores being misunderstood. I really enjoyed how the “plant eaters” act! I think this book is GREAT for kids 4+!
