There’s a fly buzzing by — “Snap!” Fly is eaten by Frog. Following the food chain, each creature plays its part. Frog is eaten by Duckling, and Duckling is eaten by Pike. Soon Fisherman is polishing off Pike. But is there something even bigger ready to grab Fisherman? This playful book enchants young children with the irresistible refrain of “Snap!” after every page turn, while offering a simple introduction to the concept of food chains. A deliciously wicked surprise ending wraps up this comical, vibrantly illustrated book.
