Gobble You Up! is a story in cumulative rhyme, centering on a wily jackal, who is too lazy to hunt for his food. He tricks his friend, the crane into becoming his prey… and then proceeds to gobble up every animal he comes across… The book features Meena art from Rajasthan, done by women on the walls and floors of their homes. This is the first time that this style–rarely seen outside the confines of Meena villages–has been used in a children’s book. Meena artist Sunita’s black-and-white drawings rework traditional imagery to illustrate a gamboling tale. To re-create the quality of the original art and rendering, the book has been silkscreen-printed by hand onto kraft paper using black and white ink. Each book is a numbered edition.
