Don't Play With Your Food by Bob Shea
Buddy the monster is excited when he comes upon some bunnies. He plans to gobble them up! What Buddy does NOT know is he is dealing with some pretty smart bunnies. The smart bunnies are able to convince Buddy NOT to eat them by agreeing to make them cupcakes. Of course after indulging in the delicious cupcakes Buddy does not have ANY room left to eat up any bunnies so he decides to come back the next day. When he comes back the next day planning to gobble up the bunnies, the bunnies convince him to instead go swimming. After being reminded he should not eat BEFORE he swims, he decides to wait until after swimming to eat the bunnies but falls asleep instead. On and on the bunnies are able to trick the monster into NOT eat them. In the end Buddy has an important decision to make regarding his tummy and the bunnies. Children will enjoy watching the not-so-scary-but-a-little-silly-monster be tricked and outfoxed by the bunnies. Sure to be a hit with kids of all ages.
