Jonathan Emmett is a writer and artist who's also played in a band and worked as an architect. He has written the tiger tales books "'A Mouse in the Marmalade"' and "'A Turtle in the Toilet"'. Jonathan lives in Nottingham, England.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3-This story is very much like Verna Aardema's Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears (Dial, 1975), but the culprit here is a fly "that buzzed through the heart of the jungle." It gets eaten by the spider, which gets eaten by the toad, which gets eaten by the crocodile, etc. The cadence follows a "This Is the House That Jack Built" pattern, which will delight listeners as it becomes clear that all of this eating was started by Lion, the King of Beasts, doing what lions do and causing animals to scatter. What sets this story apart is the creative variation of fonts. It starts out in medium-large text, perfect for young readers, and fluctuates ever so subtly, first angles, then curves up and down and around the shape of the animals. There is great rhythmic movement in the art, with bursts of color beginning with blues and greens. Gradually, dashes of other colors are added, culminating in bright orange for the King's mane, as his roar fills the whole page. Kids will be mesmerized-when they are not chiming in on the title refrain.
