Very funny and slyly thought-provoking, with an ending that parents will need to gently explain to impressionable little ones.

Carnivores aren't bad, they just do what they do. This is a great book for learning to accept who you are.

A laugh-out-loud story about a group of carnivores who become self-conscious about their meat-eating ways and attempt various ill-fated attempts to change their lifestyle.

A humourous take on the "enjoy who you are" theme.

The story is well-written by Aaron Reynolds and this is certainly one of Dan Santat's better illustrated books.

Hilarious pictures and story make this a great choice for elementary students. A fun read-aloud.

"When the Timber Wolf gets the munchies he doesn't have to think twice about grabbing a handful of bunnies. They have really negative attitudes anyway."

When the carnivores try to change their eating habits to become more politically correct, no one is happy and everyone is hungry, or slobbered on. Luckily, they soon learn that being carnivores is just who they are, and it's not bad.

Parents Note: Accepting who they are does give the carnivores free reign over having all the other animals in this book for dinner.

[The timber wolf complains] "The bunny rabbits always say, 'Quit sneaking up on me!' But he's not sneaking. He's merely a quiet walker. With vicious fangs. And scary eyes. He can't help it.
