Amazon Review

There's a rumble in the jungle
There's a whisper in the trees
The animals are waking up
And rustling the leaves.
From the outset this book is an open invitation for young children to enter the world of the jungle and experience this wonderful collection of animal poems. Written by Giles Andreae, one of Britain's bestselling modern poets and well known to many as Purple Ronnie, Rumble in the Jungle is cleverly illustrated by David Wojtowycz using vividly colourful and appealing sketches, making the whole book an amazing combination of works and colour and fun. (Age 4 and up) --Susan Naylor --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

Andreae's jungle jingles cleverly manage to capture the essence of each creature, while Wojtowycz's playful illustrations make the perfect complement (Junior) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars A rumble in the jungle 5 July 2002
Format:Audio Cassette
A brilliantly illustrated book of verse that is a must for all carers of under 5's. The verses themselves are a joy to read aloud. The tape that comes with the book brings life to the jungle and its animals. Hugh Lawrie's wit shines through the narrative. The flipside enables the child to follow the tape while reading the book and has a marvellous selection of music that represents the different jungle animals. Every home should have a copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'We can't cuddle ants!!!' 2 Oct 2005
By Lozza
Format:Paperback
This book is fantastic! We have to read this to our 2 year old daughter every bed time. She loves it and can't wait to get to the Gorilla wear every night she tells him that he can't cuddle the ants that are on every page as he will squash them!!
The book is full of colour, great pictures and brilliant poems that are so easy to read! If you only ever buy one book from Giles Andreae make sure it this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Educational Resource!! 2 Jan 2003
Format:Paperback
This book is amazing. It has so many cross-curricular benefits, across Primary and Seconday Teaching. I am a music teacher and found that children of all ages really enjoyed making music to this story. It also incorporates English, and possibly Drama if you wanted it to. It is a great educational resource. Evey teacher should have it!! I think the Government should issue one to every teacher! :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Again, again!!! 12 Nov 2007
By Jw Hart
Format:Paperback
Earlier this evening I finished reading Rumble in the Jungle to my 19 month old son for the 3rd night in a row. He has more than 40 picture books in his bedtime books selection but for the last month or 2 he has been almost exclusively fixated with this one (only Room on the Broom or the Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson get a look in now and again). Yes it could be a bit boring reading the same book every night but when when he roars with the lion and thumps his chest with the gorilla it's worth it every time! Great pictures, great rhymes, great fun.
Apr 2010: Above was written well over 2 years ago and, as far as this book is concerned, not much has changed. At almost 4, my son still adores it and tonight, for the first time, his 13 month old little brother came out with a lion's roar!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bright bold fun and no nonsense 15 Jun 2001
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This is a really terrific book which my son loves. The pictures are bright and dramatic and eyecatching - even for little ones. The poems and simple and funny and the information is straight forward and not kiddified (i.e.moo cows nonsense)

3.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointed 16 Dec 2011
Format:Paperback
The book is beautifully presented, with lovely pop-up/activity sections, however, I was disappointed with the very small number of animal poems/pictures and pages.

I was buying this book as a gift and as the owner of the non-pop-up version of the book, rightly or wrongly I had expected the full version of the book (13 animal poem & pictures)to be provided with the pop-up's as extras. From memory, I think the pop-up book consisted of just 4 animal poem & pictures.

Maybe I just misinterpreted the product information, as I thought the sample pages displayed were just that - a sample and not practically the whole book.

Still a lovely gift for a young child.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
Very disappointing. I had the lion who loves too much and assumed this was a story but it isn't. I would have returned it if it didn't cost 6 to do so.
