About this title


In this humorous tale 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 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!

Last published as a board book in 1998, this classic story whimsically illustrated by Eric Carle returns with refreshed colors and layout, and a fresh new cover design. Children and adults alike will enjoy this hilarious tale of a snake too greedy for his own good!
