I Love the Tinga Tinga series for the wonderful animations, enchanting stories, and fun characterisations but the company behind that sadly misses the spot here when it comes to compiling into written stories.
They seem to have tried to translate the animated version so literally that the page is full of dialogue with little clarification as to who has said what. Almost like reading a comic book. It makes for awkward reading when trying to read out loud to a small child and I end up interjecting "said Lion", "Said Hippo" etc etc.. to make it intelligible. They are very poorly written.

Might be Ok for older children who can read it themselves but the TV series is aimed at Pre-schoolers, so this isn't really the case.

Buy these Tinga Tinga Books for the fab artwork and fun stories but be prepared to elaborate a bit when reading it to your children.

I would recommend the African folks tales series by Mwenye Hadithi (Greedy Zebra, Lazy Lion etc..) as a far better written version.

This book was a hit with my 2 year old,the picture's are beautiful and pretty much follow the cartoon to the letter. These books are very educational as they have some swahili in them and it teaches younger children about animals and in the case with this book courage. I would highly recommend for all Tinga Tinga fans and for children that have started reading.
