Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Jungle animals dance, sing and quaff coconut milk cocktails in this rhyming holiday spree. A tree frog issues the invitations, hippos, a lion and an eland stream in and the fun begins. Backed by a rollicking cha-cha rhythm ("Hippo twirled on her tip-tippy toes,/ while Frog slip-slid down Elephant's nose./ Spider tapped on eight hairy legs,/ Rhinoceros juggled ostrich eggs"), Green's (Barnyard Song) lightly constructed story line builds to a climax with a jazz concert, then winds down to bedtime quiet. ("Then... sun sank low. Shadows fell./ The jungle climbed out of its jamboree spell"). Newcomer Wolff's festive double-page, full-bleed acrylics show jauntily-hatted gorillas and anteaters enjoying rides on a toy train; the young ones let go of their balloons in their excitement. Festive Chinese lanterns hang over the party grounds, and the guests dig into banana splits. The celebration ends with a tear and a sniffle for one over-emotional hippo, but young party-lovers will enjoy attending this celebration over and over again. Ages 4-6. (Nov.)

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-A bright green frog with a red-and-orange-striped megaphone stands in front of his house in a lush jungle setting, then hops from place to place to tell the other animals that it is Jamboree Day. In bouncing, hand-clapping, toe-tapping rhyme, Frog exhorts the animals to "spread the news!" From crocodiles to cuckoos, they dance, march, fly, and row to the jamboree. There are balloons, a train ride, stage acts, and a limbo game and wild dancing well into the night, and then all go home until next year. Brightly colored, large, double-spread acrylic illustrations fill the pages with clever and humorous animated caricatures. A few misses, such as a zebra being announced and never pictured and giraffe showing up several pages late, will bother some children, and some of the rhyming is trite, such as using "muddy Nile" to rhyme with "Crocodile." All in all, though, taken in the right spirit of true nonsense, this is fun for storytime or one-on-one and children will join in and ask for repeats.-Marlene Gawron, Orange County Library, Orlando, FL Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Though Greene (The Stable Where Jesus Was Born, not reviewed, etc.) sometimes loses the beat, this rhymed jungle party tale will elicit the same finger-snapping, hand-clapping audience response that Gail Jorgensen's Crocodile Beat (1989) and Bill Martin Jr.'s classic Chicka Chicka Boom Boom (1989) usually get. The tree frog starts it all by issuing the call each May and creatures from marching ants to a lion in tie and tails gather for fun, games, and general carousing. In his unusually energetic debut, Wolff captures all the action, depicting big, solid-looking animals with grins and brightly patterned fur or feathers jitterbugging, gesticulating, and finally bidding one another affectionate adieu. Dropped syllables and lame rhymes ("come . . . fun," "around . . . merry-go-round") may keep this from reaching the top of the charts, but it sets a happy tone that's right for any festive occasion.

    Jungle Fun for Everyone!

    One day a year the jungle animals gather. They party and play! They dance and sway! They ride rides, perform shows, and dance up a storm. You'll feel the beat as you read this rhythmical romp 'round the jungle. Wolff's brightly colored hues perfectly compliment Greene's turbo charged text. Be sure to get out your maracas and drums before reading this to the little ones!
