A cautionary tale about what can go wrong when playing tricks on others!

The rope bridge swayed and frayed and slipped and dipped a little too much. The Mighty Bitey Piranhas’ grins got even bigger.

Under a rope bridge in the jungle live the Mighty Bitey Piranhas and they are looking for a snack. When Mouse walks over the bridge on their way to Cougar’s party the Mighty Bitey Prianhas have an idea. If they can get the bridge to break they’ll have a lovely Mouse-y lunch! When Goat and Bear join Mouse on the bridge the Mighty Bitey think their plan will work wonderfully. But not everything goes to plan, and the Mighty Bitey might have bitten off more than they can chew!

A funny picture book perfect for fans of ‘Three Billy Goats Gruff’. Suitable for children aged 3-6, this book will bring plenty of joy to any story time.
