The Greedy Python

Illustrated by: Eric Carle / Read by: Stanley Tucci
For Ages: 2 - 5
The classic tale of a greedy snake, with illustrations by Eric Carle, is now available in an oversize board book edition!

In this humorous story about manners, respect, and friendship, a greedy python eats every creature he comes across in the jungle. From a tiny mouse to an enormous elephant, the devoured 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!

This oversize board book edition of a favorite story, whimsically illustrated by Eric Carle, features a refreshed cover design. Children and adults alike adore this hilarious tale of a snake too greedy for his own good!
