About the Book
The lion is king of the jungle!
The great white shark is sovereign of the seas!
The timber wolf is emperor of the forests!
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? Aaron Reynolds’s roaringly funny text is perfectly paired with Dan Santat’s mouthwatering illustrations, creating a toothsome book that’s sure to stand out from the herd.
“Irreverent and decidedly Darwinian humor pioneered by the likes of Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith . spoofing everything from foodie trends to self-actualization.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review
“Will young readers swallow such a tongue-in-cheek take on the importance of self-acceptance? With relish.”—Kirkus Reviews
“Will be a favorite for rowdy read-alouds. chuckle-inducing from cover to cover.”—School Library Journal
