Piranhas Don't Eat Bananas

The piranha is a freshwater fish that lives in South American rivers. They are known for their sharp teeth, powerful jaws and their enormous appetite for meat. The piranha will happily eat cows, sheep, donkeys, horses, monkeys, gorillas, cats, dogs, kittens, puppies, guinea pigs, bunny rabbits, goldfish, postmen, pizza delivery guys, little children who've been naughty, professional tennis players, old ladies who were just in the wrong place at the wrong time, little children who've actually been pretty good, astronauts, ballet dancers, belly dancers, TV talent show contestants, chimney sweeps and most other types of people. 

What they don't eat, though, is fruit. Especially bananas. 

‘Hey there guys. Would you like a banana?’
‘What’s wrong with you. Brian? You’re a piranha.’

Brian loves bananas. Trouble is, Brian’s a piranha. And his friends aren’t happy about his fondness for fruit...

Piranhas Don't Eat Bananas is a ridiculously funny story, written, illustrated and read by everyone's favourite author/illustrator, Aaron Blabey.
