A witty jungle romp for the adventurer in every kid

Safari etiquette can be tricky. Fortunately, our trusty narrator can help. Sort of. From what to do if an elephant stands on your foot ("Keep calm. Panicking will only startle it!") to how to escape the attentions of a crocodile ("Well? What are you waiting for? Wave your arms around and shout for help!"), our plucky guide leads our unlucky hero on a jungle adventure, barely avoiding tigers, a rhino, snakes, and--uh-oh. What’s that? Well thank heavens the monkeys are friendly at least!

Debut author Michelle Robinson teams with bestseller Peter H. Reynolds for a Monster at the End of This Book-style romp, culminating in a hilarious finish that will send readers--and our hapless hero--right back to the beginning for more.

About the Author:
Michelle Robinson lives in Bristol, England.

Peter H. Reynolds lives in Dedham, Massachusetts (the home of his family's bookstore, The Blue Bunny). Peter is the illustrator of Someday, Little Boy, and many other beloved picture books.
Review:
"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
