This is a great book for anyone who loves a cute, sweet story. My family and I read every night as part of a bedtime routine. This book fit right in. My 7 year old son loved the book, he saw the problem with the friendship and really wanted to keep reading each night to find out what happens next. We all (including my 15 & 16 year old) enjoyed the ending.

My first grader really liked this story because,

"All of the parts that happened in the story and the end part where everyone had a Happy ending." We read this for bedtime and were pleased with the story.
Malachi is a boa constrictor that is discovered by an adventurous little rat named Eve. Malachi is amused by Eve and her inquisitive nature. Eve eventually finds out what Malachi eats and must deal with that knowledge. Malachi and Eve try to find a way for all the rats and Malachi to escape without Malachi eatting them. "Feeding Malachi" is a good story to be shared with a child.

Feeding Malachi by Abbie Hilton is a really good kids book, IMO. Granted I don’t have kids, but I am goin to gift it to my sister so she can read it to my nephew. It’s a good story that brings up some important adult ideas (that animals eat each other), that can get a child thinking. The illustrations are beautiful as well.

When Abigail Hilton flopped, gasping, onto the beach of a tiny, unnamed key off the Florida coast, she was grateful that her audience included only a handful of sea gulls, a raccoon, and one very surprised panther. The panther fled, along with the raccoon, but one of the curious sea gulls hopped over to have a closer look at her. Moments later, now sticky with blood and feathers, she dragged herse ...more
