It’s good to bite a steak.

She’s not a piece of cake.


People don’t bite people!

That’s what this book’s about.

It’s good to bite a biscuit.

It’s good to bite a plum.

It’s BAD to bite your brother.

He’s not a piece of gum.

"Paired with a neatly drawn cast of doll-like animals and human figures in Caldecott Honoree Idle’s spacious, harmoniously hued illustrations, Wheeler’s infectiously exclamatory rhymes present her anti-biting message with lighthearted but compelling persistence . . . A chewy theme for children with biting issues, and a rollicking readaloud for all." — Booklist, STARRED REVIEW
