One morning, a beautiful plant sprouts out of the ground, and it is very, very hungry. But water and sunlight aren’t the only things this plant craves: it’s a carnivore! The plant gobbles up everything in its path, from caterpillars to geckos to spaceships. But the plant isn’t the only one who’s hungry… 

With humorous nods to Eric Carle, The Very Hungry Plant is another imaginative adventure from the author-illustrator of The Little Barbarian. Playful, energetic paintings and a dash of absurdity create a story sure to spark laughter with every reading.

Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Both a kid-pleasing snack and a philosophical amuse-bouche.”
“A silly, slightly darker alternative to There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly.”
The Wall Street Journal
“Mr. Moriconi’s illustrations are hilarious in their simplicity, especially when, after taking a rest from eating, the plant suffers an unexpected reversal of fortune.”
