Overview

In the jungle, in a tree
Sits a little chimpanzee.
Mother said she'd be right back
But now the branch snaps with a crack…

And in a SNAP, Little Chimp is off on a big adventure-taking a watery ride atop a hippo, swinging on vines, and munching bunches of bananas. But as he goes bumping, jumping, and racing across the jungle, he never stops wondering: “Where could Mother be?” Little Chimp may not know, but sharp-eyed kids will see that mommy has an eye on him all the time! An enchanting text filled with rhythm and rhyme, and sweetly charming illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS—When a branch breaks off his tree, Little Chimp falls to the jungle floor. Even though he can't see his mother anywhere, his curiosity gets the better of his fear. So he heads off, following various animals, meanwhile wondering, "Where could mother be?" Observant children will see her everywhere, watching on the riverbank as he rides on a hippo's back and peering through the palm fronds as he swings on the vines. This is a well-worn story line, but it has perennial appeal. Children who are just beginning the journey toward independence love to start testing limits in a safe, fictional environment, and this title will fill the bill. The rhyming text reads aloud well. The colorful paintings lack distinction but are sweet and accessible. Martin Waddell's Owl Babies (Candlewick, 1992) is a variation on this theme and is more artistically effective. But if you're looking for a new book to share with groups of two-year-olds, this one will go over well.—Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL
