Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

PW called this rhyming story about 10 friendly animal characters "a childlike charmer." Ages 4-8. (May)
Copyright 2000 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1?Bond may be best known for illustrating Laura Numeroff's If You Give a Mouse a Cookie (HarperCollins, 1985), but this book is certainly a sign that her talent didn't end there. The plot of the charming counting book runs along cumulative lines as a bug goes for a walk and meets up with a cat, followed by a crocodile, a bee, a pig, a toad, and, finally, a mouse. The creatures' various adventures are described in lighthearted rhyme; they wander into a house and meet a spider, a bear, and, finally, a young boy. The tone throughout the bouncy text is cheerful and lively. The cartoon drawings are bright and fun, complementing the writing nicely. A sure bet for story hours.?Melissa Hudak, North Suburban District Library, Roscoe, IL

TUMBLE BUMBLE is an awesomely fun book. We have a board book printing, which seems to be currently unavailable new. My 14 month old has been asking us to read it over and over for 2 months now, and none of us is tired of it. The singsong rhyme feels natural and unforced. The pictures and story are charming without being sticky sweet. This is a great early story book -- enough story to keep parents happy but never too much text on one page. My baby is getting interested in the growing parade of animals and calls out the name of his favorite ("beeeeeeee!") when we meet it, and then finds the bee again on each page. There's a chance to name things (9 animals + a boy) and to count things.

The age recommendation on this book says "4-8." IGNORE THAT and buy TUMBLE BUMBLE much, much earlier. At our house, the 14 month old and a 2 1/2 year old both enjoy TUMBLE BUMBLE.

My 2 Year Old and I love this book. He get's to complete the rhyming sentences for me. It's becoming one of the his favorite stories to hear even without the book. The rhymes are catchy and the animals are very cute. I'm not sure why the Editorial reviews rate this for 3-5 year olds. It's definitely great for the younger ones. I didn't realize until reading another review that this is the same author as "If you give a Moose a Muffin." The author has a way of engaging children - she's wonderful!

I think I bought this book for my son when he was about 10 months old and he absolutely loved it. I think I love it just about as much as he does. It's the kind of book that you can read over and over again (which you will) and not get so incredibly sick of it that you want to puke. It starts out "A tiny bug went for walk. He met a cat and stopped to talk. They fell in step and strolled awhile and bumped into a crocodile." As you can see, the words roll together very nicely creating a pleasant sound to the young (or old) ear. The pictures are simple but colorful which is also very appealing to young audiences. My son is now 27 months old and he still enjoys reading this book and I imagine he will want to read it for a long time to come. I highly recommend this book for young kids. It's never too early to start reading to your kids!

My 17 month old loves this book!! He loves the animals and the little rhyme. He often wants it read to him more than once at bedtime. The drawings are very cute and colorful like all of her other books. The story is about a little bug who meets other charming friends along his walk. The other critters are familiar to young listeners and include a bee, a pig, a cat, a crocodile, a toad, a bear, a spider, a boy, and a mouse. It is the perfect length to keep little listeners interested (about 3 minutes depending on how much time you spend looking at the pictures). I would highly recommend this book.

Join this motley crue of misfits as they terrorize a neighborhood committing several felonies along the way. It all starts with a bug and a cat out looking for trouble. They meet up with a crocodile and bee. The bee ditches work and things seem pretty normal until their first class A misdemeanor, assaulting a minor (in this case a baby pig). He starts crying out after the attack so they hush him up and then kidnap him. We the audience never get to know if the Baby Pig ever gets home or if after this he is destined for a life of crime. After this they come across a toad and a mouse and using the same initiation ceremony they gave the pig they realize they need to get off the streets. In my house we like to change the line here, "Tippy Toeing on 14 feet, they proceeded with their B&E". That's right they just break into someone's house and start tearing up the place and robbing them blind. The gang cleans the home owners out of food and then go snooping around looking for "bears", as though that'll hold up in court. I am sure they will tell their defense attorney later that they got in the bed because the crocodile said something about being tired, but I think they were laying in wait. Unknown to them at the time, this house was already being cased out by a murderous bear who while also breaking in decides to join up with them. In walks a boy who we'll just call Stockholm Syndrome Sid and the story finishes off right before what I am guessing is a fit of carnage and destruction.
This is a fun read for kids and adults. I would recommend it to anyone who can look past the subtle anti-establishment notions of this dark comedy and see the deeper social issues about speciesism.

We came upon Tumble Bumble because we loved "If you give a Pig a Pancake" and the other books by the same author. The animals look like ones we would like to be friends with! My daughter loves the picture at the end of the book with all the animals in bed together and the spider coming to join them. Such a happy book. GREAT book as a gift in board book style for little hands. Love it!

My 2-year-old grandson loves to chime in on the last few words of every line in this story. We have fun poring over the details where all the animals are having their own lunches and discussing who's eating what. The message about friendship is well portrayed by the cheerful text and exuberant illustrations. (And the issue of animals entering a house uninvited is perfect for initiating a discussion of boundaries, and perhaps a literary comparison with "Goldilocks.")
