Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ken Marantz
Hungry Python plans to lure the other animals out of hiding by inviting them to a party, promising they will all be safe. He announces a contest to see who can do the cleverest tricks. With Parrot as master of ceremonies, the animals, some alone and some in combination, perform feats of strength and balance, or just plain fun. But after Pelican crowds an amazing number of creatures into his beak, Python makes his move. He says he can put more of them into his mouth. After they all climb in, to their dismay they find that they have become his dinner. They are saved when Elephant comes by, stamps on Python's tail, and holds his foot there until they all escape. They tie a knot in Python's tail to remind him not to do it again. The simply told tale is only the base on which Wildsmith builds his illustrations, filling his double-page scenes with tangles of colors and naturalistic animals. His drawings depict the creatures, but it is his use of color that generates emotion. His jungle is very inviting, and even Python is not very threatening amid the riot of colors.
