Deep in the jungle, Python is very hungry. All the animals keep out of his way until he thinks of a clever scheme. He'll throw a party and everyone is invited. Now, who could pass up a good party?

Now in paperback, Brian Wildsmith's fanciful animal drawings and brisk and amusing text make even a Python's party fun.
