    This is an adventure through a whole new type of jungle where flowers are so large that you can drink nectar from them and they will lift you off the ground The snakes in this story are scary There are so many that the snakes can make a carpet There are some crazy animals and plants in this jungle He is captured by some blue bottomed monkeys and taken to this weird tribunal There is a bird that looks like the dodo from the movie Up, but this came out first It helps to save the boy The wei This is an adventure through a whole new type of jungle where flowers are so large that you can drink nectar from them and they will lift you off the ground The snakes in this story are scary There are so many that the snakes can make a carpet There are some crazy animals and plants in this jungle He is captured by some blue bottomed monkeys and taken to this weird tribunal There is a bird that looks like the dodo from the movie Up, but this came out first It helps to save the boy The weird twist is that the boy finds his parents in a very large glass jar that he has to break them out of It s a strange story The nephew s favorite part of the story is this boy walks into a giant petrified animal It s like a cave He walks through the stomach and intestines and then the book says he exited through the cloaca My nephew giggled and said, he came out his butt He burst out laughing He loved that It was written for him He thought all the creatures were cool and the cave was great so he gave this 4 stars

    Steig s tale, while well illustrated as always, of a boy roaming the jungle and seeing strange sights is really nothing special It s a pleasant enough one time read, but I doubt this will be anyone s read it again tonight bedtime favorite Then again, I m not a child, so take this review with a grain of salt.

    Leonard is on a dangerous quest through the wild Zabajaba Jungle, hoping to survive its unknown dangers and rescue his parents The creatures that he meets within the jungle and the ways that he finds to thwart them will make for an interesting story, especially for students in the very early grades of elementary school.

    It was pretty terrible for a children s book It used big words, didn t really have a story just a character rambling through the jungle for no reason It did not hold the interest of my kids at all and it left me entirely unimpressed.

    This is from the author of Shrek which is one of the rare cases where I prefer the movie to the book , so I expected wackiness, but this was just random and rambling, like an acid trip for kids, but not in a good Alice in Wonderland way.

    Normally, I don t mind nonsensical picture books, but this one left me with a bad feeling in my stomach and didn t have the decency to put together a through story line Even though the art was fun, this book was all over the place I wouldn t be able to recommend this book to anyone.

    NO I thought my kids brought home a children s book from Headstart until I started to read it to them, and stopped at the first page I felt like I was reading my children a mix of Penthouse and High Times I was so taken back that this author would write a children s story about something like this This book is awful My local Headstart threw the book in the garbage when i presented it to them and they actually READ the story Call me overexposed to the world today, but i would prefer NO I thought my kids brought home a children s book from Headstart until I started to read it to them, and stopped at the first page I felt like I was reading my children a mix of Penthouse and High Times I was so taken back that this author would write a children s story about something like this This book is awful My local Headstart threw the book in the garbage when i presented it to them and they actually READ the story Call me overexposed to the world today, but i would prefer not to pre expose my children to this crap The author knew what he was writing when he wrote this book and to think it would be ok for children is outrageous, i give TWO THUMBS DOWN on this one, so much that we THREW IT IN THE GARBAGE

    This is a fun and adventurous little book I felt it was a bit of a mind trip when he found his parents trapped in a bottle where they couldn t hear him I mean, what is that suppose to represent My only complaint was the spastic approach, one moment being dragged off by randomly appearing monkeys and then you are exiting some ancient animals giant cloaca I liked the pictures
