Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Another exclamatory collaboration from the author and illustrator of Choo Choo Clickety-Clack! (2005), this picture book celebrates wild animals amid some wildly hued settings (hot-pink skies and royal purple mountains are just the beginning) that manage to complement the text rather than distract from it. Ayliffe’s cut-paper collages pop off the page in a friendly way. Animal families abound, tigers smile, and lions don’t really seem fierce. Likewise, Mayo’s words describe animal activities that children can relate to: climbing, crouching, hiding, munching. Each spread features a wonderfully concise four-line poem ending with a kid-appealing exhortation: “Tall giraffes love stretch, stretch, stretching / long necks going up. . . up . . . reaching, / black tongues flicking, lips leaf picking / So stretch, tall giraffes, stretch!” Concluding with a final spread picturing many sleeping animals and a few still wide awake, this book cheers on movement and activity—even at night! Grades K-2. --Abby Nolan


Eleven species of wild animals frolic in their habitats. Two-page spreads in vividly bright colors depict animal groups engaging in their favorite activities. While the biggest lion roars, the cubs are "racing, chasing, scrambling." Zebras gallop in a herd against a setting sun, monkeys swing through the trees and pandas munch on bamboo leaves. There are also elephants, tigers, giraffes, hippos, leopards, kangaroos and bears. A final spread shows all the included animals in a single landscape. Mayo's text is simple but catchy in its repeated gerunds. Ayliffe's cut-paper illustrations nearly jump off the page - their simplicity might encourage young listeners to make their own pictures with cut outs - and each spread is an appealing riot of color. Should attract the very young, who might get the mistaken idea that kangaroos, panda bears and lions all live near each other. (Picture book. 2-5) (Kirkus Reviews) --Kirkus Reviews

This book is adorable. There is about 4 lines of text per page which is perfect for my two year old. The pictures are vivid and capture the attention of toddlers. This is one of my daughter's absolute favorites!

This large book is so bright & colorful! It is my son's favorite book. We read it to him several times a day and actually had to buy an additional copy to keep in the closet because this one is starting to fray from over-use! What a fabulous story and illustrations!

What does a cow say? It says moooooo! We all know what farm animals say, but what about those more exotic animals? Lions, elephants, zebras, tigers, giraffes, monkeys, hippos, leopards, pandas, kangaroos and grizzly bears all have their special ways of talking or doing things. Waaaahh! Dumm-dd-dum! Stretch, stretch, stretch! Munch, munch, munch! In the trees, on the ground or in the jungle all exotic animals "talk" to us in their own way.

"Giant panda love munch, munch, munching,
bamboo seeking . . . bamboo finding,
leaves chew, chewing, tough stalks grinding.
So munch, giant pandas, munch!"

This is a very vibrant, colorful and informative book. The bright, bold animals just seem to leap off the page at the reader. Very young children will enjoy turning the pages simply looking and the mothers and their babies playing and going along their daily activities. The text is very rhythmical and appealing. If you have an expressive voice, this will be one book that you'll be asked to read time and time again. ROAR!
