Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0887082688, Hardcover)

The greedy python eats every creature he comes across. From a tiny mouse to an enormous elephant, the eaten animals eventually befriend one another in the belly of the snake where they team up and kick the inside of the python until he spits them out. Rather than learning his lesson, the python sticks to his greedy ways - when he spots his own tail, and mistakes it for food, he swallows himself and disappears!

In two stories bound together back to back, a tortoise realizes the need for a shell after several scary encounters and a greedy python eats to excess, finally eating himself.
