I picked up this fabulous childrens book at a second hand shop a few weeks ago as I couldn't resist the wonderful illustrations. Python's Party was originally published in England in 1974 and was written and illustrated by Brian Wildsmith.
The illustrations are worth buying the book for - even you don't have any children to read the book to! The book is still available today under the new title 'Jungle Party'.
Python's Party tells the story of a sneaky Python living in the jungle. Python is feeling hungry and all the jungle animals are hiding from him...... so Python decides to throw a party to lure the animals out! The animals can't resist a party and decide to attend and perform party tricks. However, Python saves his party trick until last and lures all the animas into his mouth!! Luckily Elephant tramples by saves the animals by stamping on Pythons tail.
