Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-An entertaining tale in which a girl's vivid imagination whisks her away to Africa. The text begins, "Racing in my sturdy jeep-on safari! Beep! Beep! Beep!" Zebras, giraffe, water buffalo, and a crocodile are some of the beasts she encounters. The large, double-spread acrylic illustrations humorously depict her adventures with the creatures, some friendly and some not so. The child is quite capable of fending for herself until, "Uh-oh. Footsteps. Greater danger! It's the Big Safari Ranger." While Dad is tucking her in again, the collection of toy animals scattered over the bedclothes reveals where all those fancies originated. Bold words such as "SCREEEEEECH!" "YIKES!" "CRASH!" and "ROAR!!!" are clear indicators that a reading just before bedtime may wake a child up rather than lull one to sleep. The richly colored pictures and constant action make this a good choice for storytime. Ashman's Sailing off to Sleep (S & S, 2001) has a similar, though quieter, ending while this title is a rip-roaring, exciting excursion.-Maryann H.

Kirkus Reviews
This adventurous romp through the before-bedtime jungle is accentuated by fantastic sound effects: "Beep! Beep! Beep!" and "Screeeeeech!" as the safari-bound youngster races his (or her) jeep through the terrain, passing the likes of zebras and wildebeests. All is well until the jeep bumps into a rhino calf. The rhino, accompanied by a lanky ostrich, gives chase. Things really get zany as the child jumps into the mud with hippos, meets a crocodile and somersaults with chimps. At last, he or she settles inside a tent, curls up and listens to the noisy night. All manner of creature sounds breach the relative safety of the tent cloth, from hoots and squeals to rumbles and hisses. Finally, the "Big Safari Ranger" stops the action and it really is bedtime-surrounded by miniatures of everything met along the way. With full-page waggish illustrations painted in thick strokes with lively colors, this mini-thriller is proof that imaginations really can go wild. (Picture book. 2-5)
