Review

Anything can happen on a sunny day in the jungle. A cheerful little boy out exploring has masses of lucky escapes. Somehow he avoids being eaten by a lion, a starving snake, a man-eating hunter, a bear and a venomous spider, who prefers the biscuit lurking in the depths of his pocket.

Prematurely celebrating his freedom with a new little friend, the children are plucked from the ground by a vulture who drops them into a pool...full of crocodiles, who are fortunately all asleep. Tiptoeing out of danger, the children finally meet a big red monster.

A brilliant bedtime book with gloriously comic illustrations, the text begs to be read aloud,

amply peppered with dramatic sound effects.
