Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-While walking the dog, Albie stumbles across the "Jumble Jungle," and a sign at the entrance challenges him to figure out the name of one animal he meets in order to win a lifetime membership. However, these are no ordinary animals. The smiling crocodile is a "crocosmile," the lion with wings is a "flyon," etc. As Albie tries to retrieve his sneakers from the shoe-obsessed "kangarshoes," two striped animals rescue him and unlock the exit gate. Finally, he has caught on to the punning names and guesses his rescuers to be "keybras," winning his prize. There's not much of a story here, and the wordplay seems more suitable for an older audience than the format and pictures suggest. Still, the playful cartoons are colorful and appealing, and they may inspire children to create a Jumble Jungle of their own.-Be Astengo, Alachua County Library, Gainesville, FL Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
