Booklist Review
Brian finds himself at odds with his fellow piranhas, due to his fondness for fruits and vegetables. Spare, rhyming text, describes him sharing a banana only to be asked, What is wrong with you, Brian? You're a piranha. Next he offers silverbeet, peas, and plums, but is turned down: piranhas prefer feet, knees, and bums. Finally Brian convinces them to try a fruit platter. Following a wordless double-page feeding frenzy, the piranhas declare that the fruit is yum . . . but they still prefer bum. A hapless swimmer floats above the arguing fish, unaware of the danger below until the final page when the hungry piranhas nibble his swim trunks. Expressive acrylic cartoon illustrations, similar in style to Blabey's Pig the Pug books, feature fish with oversized comedic eyes and convey a strong range of emotions. Banana-colored endpapers featuring field-guide-style pseudo-scientific definitions for "piranha" and "banana" add a clever touch and set the comedic tone. A surefire storytime hit, hand this madcap reimagining of Green Eggs and Ham to preschoolers and emergent readers.--Suzanne Harold Copyright 2019 Booklist
