Nayu’s Reading Corner recently gave a wonderful review for Beware the Mighty Bitey (part of the 2018 Summer Reading Challenge) by Heather Pindar with illustrations by Susan Batori:
‘I accepted this book for review without seeing the cover – the synopsis on it’s own had me smiling away and intrigued! I find piranhas cute just as I do crocodiles, they tend to be used in picture books with humour so my imagination was running wild. The story is awesome!
The piranhas are as hilarious as I’d hoped, their expressions and thoughts as they tempt animals to go on their falling apart bridge was clear to see and funny, with lots of great words and different fonts used to bring the story even more to life than it already is. Their hungry nature is depicted perfectly, with a surprise end that I didn’t see coming, which is always a pleasant surprise in picture books. I’m not sure how much the Mighty Bities would want their tale publicised, but I certainly want everyone to read it!’
