Looking for examples of picture books where the MC eats another character at the end. Not your usual happy ever after.

The only titles coming to mind for me at the moment are:
Jon Klassen - I want my hat back/this is not my hat
Charlotte Voake - Melissa's octopus and other unsuitable pets.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions....and happy writing in 2016!

Ugly Fish by Kara LaReau, although the eating begins much sooner & the MC is eaten at the end. Love it.
Carnivores by Aaron Reynolds

No one is eaten, but Zombies in Love/Zombie two plus one, Zombelina, and Vampirina Ballerina are a bit macabre too.

In Everyone Loves Bacon by Kelly DiPucchio, the bacon gets eaten at the end.
