Alex is a greedy little pig. ‘Don’t eat between meals!’ his mother always says, but Alex finds it hard to obey. When he walks to the river to take a bath, he finds many snacks: apples, raspberries,... Suddenly, a hungry monster grabs Alex and wants to devour him. ‘Monster, don’t eat me!’ Alex screams and he fantasizes about bigger meals: an elephant in the forest, a rabbit village under the earth,... When he runs out of ideas the monster prepares to eat him after all. Then the monster’s mother appears and shouts: ‘I’ve told you before: don’t eat between meals!’


Children will alternately laugh and shiver at Alex’ plight in this playful picture book about pigs and monsters.
