for My Brother Needs a Boa
by Anne Weston
and Cheryl Nathan
Benito has a problem: he owns the only store in his remote rainforest village, and a pesky rat is driving away all his customers. The only solution? A boa constrictor, of course! But none of the snakes his neighbors find are just right for chasing away the rat as soon as possible. Benito rejects one after another until, finally, the perfect snake chooses Benito! The vivid and richly textured illustrations are full of charming details, and children will enjoy identifying all the animals that complete this picture of life in a rainforest community.
