Content descriptions

General Note: "First published in Australia in 2015 by Scholastic Press, an imprint of Scholastic Australia Pty Ltd."--Copyright page.
Summary, etc.: Told in rhyming text, Brian tries to get his fellow piranhas to try his fruit and vegetable platter, but they all prefer meat--like those human feet dangling in the water.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 July #1
    Brian finds himself at odds with his fellow piranhas, due to his fondness for fruits and vegetables. Spare, rhyming text, describes him sharing a banana only to be asked, "What is wrong with you, Brian? You're a piranha." Next he offers silverbeet, peas, and plums, but is turned down: piranhas prefer feet, knees, and bums. Finally Brian convinces them to try a fruit platter. Following a wordless double-page feeding frenzy, the piranhas declare that the fruit is "yum". . . but they "still prefer bum." A hapless swimmer floats above the arguing fish, unaware of the danger below until the final page when the hungry piranhas nibble his swim trunks. Expressive acrylic cartoon illustrations, similar in style to Blabey's Pig the Pug books, feature fish with oversized comedic eyes and convey a strong range of emotions. Banana-colored endpapers featuring field-guide-style pseudo-scientific definitions for piranha and banana add a clever touch and set the comedic tone. A surefire storytime hit, hand this madcap reimagining of Green Eggs and Ham to preschoolers and emergent readers. Preschool-Grade 1. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
