Terry at The Letterpress Project ‘grew up knowing that you should never trust a Piranha fish’ but was amused to find author Heather Pindar‘s little twist at the end of Beware the Mighty BiteyÂ providedÂ Â ‘the naughty fish with a suitable salutary outcome’.Â The wonderful illustrations from Susan Batori which brought the adventure to life also received praise in this recent review:
‘This is a gentle (if youâ€™re not a Piranha) little morality tale about what can happen to you if you plan to do something bad to someone else. But the messages are all implicit and not laboured because the focus of the book is fun. Big colourful drawings in a cartoon style that younger children will immediately recognise, big friendly animals that eventually get the upper-hand, a group of villains plotting just the right amount of jeopardy and plenty of song and repetition for the children to join in with.
The perfect recipe.’
