An evening meeting meant an early story and a late review of our bedtime story – Beware the Mighty Bitey by Heather Pindar and Susan Batori.

So when animals begin to cross the bridge, the piranhas seen an opportunity to catch themselves some dinner. As more animals carrying instruments pile on, the rope bridge groans under their combined weight. Will the piranhas be well-fed or might there be a twist in the tale?!
This is a super book, full of suspense and tension with a fantastic twist at the end! The illustrations are funny and quirky and combine well with a thoughtful layout of text. An excellent book that you really should read!
