A Jungle Book
The author of The Nose Book turns her talent for nonsense verse to Africa for a humorous look at the animals who roam that continent. And they’re all here—the lion, cheetah, hyena, elephant, gorilla, wildebeest, zebra, crocodile, impala and more—fifteen familiar denizens of the jungles and savannahs offer personal views of their lives in the wild. The hippo gives you a piece of her mind should you choose to call her fat, the crocodile rationalizes his role as predator, the zebra explains that no two of them are alike (but they’re all well dressed!) and the impala considers beauty a burden while the lion is simply waiting for the lioness to deliver his dinner. The author’s humor is sure to delight both children and adults and the full page, brightly colored illustrations only add to the mystique of the featured creatures.
Here you have a jungle book.
What jungle will it be?
For there are jungles everywhere
by the mountains and the seas.
There are jungles off in Thailand,
Jungles South American,
But this jungle’s in Africa
where all these creatures roam
So turn the pages, read the words
and see who calls it home!
