Author note

Brian Wildsmith was raised in a small mining village in Yorkshire, where, he says, 'Everything was grey. There wasn't any colour. It was all up to my imagination. I had to draw in my head...' Since those early days, Brian has created more than eighty picture books, which have been translated into twenty languages and have won him an international following. He has been awarded the Kate Greenaway Medal, Britain's highest honour for a distinguished picture book. The Brian Wildsmith Museum was founded in Japan in 1994.

Description

Python is hungry, and, knowing this, all the other animals are keeping out of his way. So wily Python comes up with a cunning scheme. He invites them all to a party, promising he will be good. The animals can't resist, and join in enthusiastically when he suggests they all perform their party tricks. Python saves his trick for last - and if it hadn't been for Elephant happening to pass by, he might have had the last laugh...What Python's trick is, and how the animals were deceived by him, is told with wit and zest by one of our greatest picture book storytellers.
