Little Tree Dude is hungry! He is also bored! Bored by his diet of squishy, mushy, worms. This red-eyed tree frog is ready to mix things up. And really, why not try a banana, some berries, and a grape? But with each new food he tastes, Little Tree Dude learns (as all carnivores must) there is a reason why he prefers a diet that is crunchy (and protein-packed!), not sweet.

Young readers will fall in love with the cutest of red-eyed tree frogs and be captivated by this rhyming, taste-testing adventure through the rainforest.

So much to love about Crunchy, Not Sweet! 

  • The Cuteness Factor
    We dare you to look at the cover and try not to say, “Awww.” Little Tree Dude is irresistible, thanks to Amy Ward’s dynamic use of crayon, watercolor, and digital illustration techniques.
  • The Format
    Crunchy, Not Sweet is designed specifically for little hands. It’s smaller size and thicker, glossy pages give it a sturdy feel without being a board book.
  • STEM for the Youngest of Readers
    Little Tree’s Dude’s journey through the rainforest introduces readers to the concepts of a red-eyed tree frog’s diet and specifically to carnivores and herbivories. Like all tree frogs, Little Tree Dude is a carnivore, which is why in the end he sticks to a diet that is crunchy, not sweet.
