The lion is king of the jungle!
The great white shark is sovereign of the seas!
The timber wolf is emperor of the forests!


But...it's lonely at the top of the food chain. It's difficult to fit in when plant eaters can be so cruel--just because you ate a relative of theirs that one time! What's a carnivore to do?

Aaron Reynolds's roaringly funny text is perfectly paired with Dan Santat's dynamic illustrations, creating a toothsome picture book that's sure to stand out from the herd.

I have a class of 20 four year olds from diverse backgrounds. As a school, we are 100% free and reduced lunch. Many of the children do not have books in their homes and therefore their only exposure to literature is what I make available in the classroom.
