A delightful movie tie-in sure entertain young readers, and designed to mix in a little education, too! 12 Aug. 2005
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Madagascar: The Essential Guide is a picturebook offering backstory information pertaining to the popular and entertaining CGI motion picture "Madagascar", about four animal friends - a hippo, a lion, a giraffe, and a zebra - who desire to escape their zoo and live in the wild. Madagascar is not narrated in the traditional storybook style, but rather devotes each two-page spread to a closer look behind the scenes of the movie and within the personalities of the characters, along with fun and true facts about the island of Madagascar and its wildlife. As a movie for all ages, Madagascar especially to be commended in that it does not pretend that predator/prey relationships do not exist, even in a movie that features predator and prey animals as friends, and Madagascar: The Essential Guide makes a note of this. A delightful movie tie-in sure entertain young readers, and designed to mix in a little education, too!
