Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-3?"Imagine you are climbing a ragged tree trunk hand over hand. You are speckled in sunlight that warms and changes you are a jaguar." So begins this engaging picture book in which readers experience the sights and sounds of the rainforest through the eyes of the animal. They observe as he lounges by day, watching the activities of the spider monkeys and birds in the canopy, and hunts by night in successful pursuit of an armadillo. Rothman vividly captures the images of the rainforest in French Guiana. The lyrical text placed on full-page richly colored pictures makes this an excellent book for reading aloud and for group discussion.?Helen Rosenberg, Chicago Public Library, IL

From Booklist

Ages 5^-9. Through the imagination of a boy climbing hand over hand up a tree trunk, readers are transported to the treetop lair of a jaguar. There the youth's imaginings flower into Rothman's lush double-page paintings inspired by the tropical rain forest of French Guiana. Ryder's schooled text wraps scientific facts about the jaguar's lifestyle and habitat in poetic phrases that are unobtrusively placed in Rothman's expansive views of the jaguar padding along the riverbank, stalking its armadillo prey, or relaxing on a branch in the forest canopy. The luminous acrylics create a you-are-there immediacy, making the artist's sumptuous depictions of the forest fauna into a memorable armchair excursion. Ellen Mandel

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Joanne Ryder's notes on jaguars at the beginning of the book was outstanding. I like having information on the subject before I start reading the story. The boy imagining he was a jaguar was unique and realistic because most children play using their imaginations. I thought the story was poetic with great illustrations. I'm glad I own this book.
