Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

"A subversive delight ... an unexpected, hilarious collaboration" Guardian "Perfection on a page" Daily Mail When a woeful mouse is swallowed up by a wolf, he quickly learns he is not alone: a duck has already set up digs, and, boy, has that duck got it figured out! Turns out it's pretty nice inside the belly of the beast - there's delicious food, elegant table settings and, best of all, dancing. And there's something more: no more fear of being eaten by a wolf! Life's not so bad, considering the alternatives. That is, until a hunter shows up... With a nod to traditional fables and a wink to the reader, the award-winning Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen, of Sam and Dave Dig a Hole, Extra Yarn and Triangle, offer a tale of cooperation and creative cuisine that is sure to go down easy.

When a mouse is swallowed by a wolf, he learns that a duck devoured earlier has set up a table to enjoy the food the gluttonous predator eats.
