Find out what piranhas eat -- and don't eat! -- in this new, irresistibly funny picture book from Aaron Blabey, the bestselling creator of Pig the Pug!Everyone knows that piranhas don't eat bananas -- except for Brian. This little fish loves to munch not only on bananas, but on fruit of all kinds! Brian's piranha friends think he's crazy. Piranhas don't eat bananas -- their sharp teeth are for eating meat! And there's a scrumptious pair of feet dangling in the water nearby...Rich with author-illustrator Aaron Blabey's hysterical text and unforgettably wacky illustrations, Piranhas Don't Eat Bananas is a hilarious story about trying new things -- no matter how strange they seem!
Brian, a piranha, clearly did not get the memo about what his species eats, and it's frustrating his fellow fish. "Well, how about some silverbeet?" asks the piranha protag when the others reject the titular banana offering. "Are you serious, Brian? We eat feet" replies the opposition's leader as a human's toes suddenly dangle temptingly in the water. Brian, who holds forth from the left side of each spread, keeps at it, suggesting peas and plums as the others counter with preferred piranha foods (knees, bums). He eventually convinces his carnivorous peers to decide for themselves whether plant-based eats are "yucky or yum," and the fish concur that they're tasty just not as delicious as the swim-trunk-clad human buns now on the scene. As the green, bug-eyed fish float and squabble in rhyme amid a bubble-flecked white space, Blabey (the Bad Guys series) hits all the right notes of absurdity (including piling enough fruit on Brian's head to give Carmen Miranda a run for her money) to send young readers into a bedtime reading frenzy.
