Eve is an inquisitive baby rat who regularly escapes from her cage. One night she meets a strange creature in a glass tank across the room, a boa constrictor named Malachi. The snake is amused by Eve's questions, and he awes her with stories of the wilds where he was caught. What will happen to their friendship when Eve discovers what Malachi eats?
The Eve and Malachi series are short chapter books for children and their parents who enjoy creepy stories. The book does have a happy ending.
