Product Description:

From the author of the much-loved Stellaluna comes a charming tale of a young tree python named Verdi. Verdi is full of crazy antics and adventure and wishes to never grow old and boring like the green tree pythons. When his scales start to change, he tries everything to keep them young and yellow. As you can guess, it doesn't work, but the charming ending illustrates the idea, "Growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional. 44 hardcover pages with a short info section in the back about snakes. Laura

Publisher Description:

Young Verdi doesn't want to grow up big and green. He likes his bright yellow skin and sporty stripes. Besides, all the green snakes he meets are lazy, boring, and rude. When Verdi finds a pale green stripe stretching along his whole body, he tries every trick he can think of to get rid of it--and ends up in a heap of trouble. Despite his efforts, Verdi turns green, but to his delight, he discovers that being green doesn't mean he has to stop being himself. "Cannon is on a roll, her gift for creating memorable characters and scenes on glorious display in this tale of a feisty python hatchling.--Publishers Weekly
