Piranhas Don’t Eat Bananas by Aaron Blabey

piranhas don't eat bananas - Tacos book review


“We are meat eaters, Brian!”

I love this book for the sheer silliness. What a crack up! Brian the Piranha comes to his mates with a feast of fruits. But, the other piranhas just won’t have it. “We are meat eaters, Brian!” They say. They are not interested in grapes, bananas or pears, they eat meat. Human meat mainly – knees, feet and even bums.


Hilarious Illustrations

The illustrations in this book really add to the humour. I love the expression on the piranhas faces when Brian shows them his plums.

Brian’s piranha mates eventually try the fruit. They demolish an entire fruit platter with real piranha gusto, which Blabey’s illustrations capture so fantastically. But, did they enjoy it?

Well, let’s just say the verdict is pretty darn funny!
