"Like an edgier version of If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, this faux guide to the jungle offers advice for Indiana Jones wannabes....Reynolds's digital illustrations are even more rambunctious and action-driven than his work in 2011's Huck Runs Amuck! and he's especially clever at playing the reactions of the hapless hero for laughs -- and there are plenty of them." — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"The humor of [Reynolds's] watercolor drawings fits the exaggeration of the storyline nicely. When the ending suggests that the story is starting over, listeners will be happy to hear it again." — Kirkus Reviews
"Perfect for storytimes...allowing children to discuss what's happening, extend the text, and predict what may come next. Be sure to offer this to fans of Laura Numeroff's If You Give a Mouse...
books." — School Library Journal
"Reynolds' zesty art builds both tension and slapstick humor...Reading this aloud will be a delight for reader and audience." — BCCB
