Gobble You Up! (Paperback)
Gita Wolf, Sunita
Gobble You Up! is a story in cumulative rhyme, centering on a wily jackal, who is too lazy to hunt for his food. He tricks his friend, the crane into becoming his prey… and then proceeds to gobble up every animal he comes across… The book features Meena art from Rajasthan, done by women on the walls and floors of their homes. This is the first time that this style–rarely seen outside the confines of Meena villages–has been used in a children’s book. Meena artist Sunita’s black-and-white drawings rework traditional imagery to illustrate a gamboling tale.
