Author(s): Ronda Armitage
In this raucous jungle caper illustrated by Dinosaurs Don't Have Bedtimes' Nikki Dyson, something MIGHTY with SUPER-DUPER sharp teeth keeps biting Frog, Monkey and Zebra ... right on their bottoms! "Ya-hoooooo!" So, guarding their beautiful behinds, the trio run as fast as they can through the jungle. They're looking for big, brave King Lion, who just might know what to do... Delicious drama builds before the bottom-biting creature's identity is finally revealed in this hilarious tale brought brilliantly to life by the read-aloud sound effects of Ronda Armitage and the exuberant, magnificent art of Nikki Dyson.
"With its combination of suspense, silliness, playful language and noisy orchestration, Ronda Armitage's longish text, together with Nikki Dyson's ebullient illustrations will undoubtedly please young listeners, not to mention readers aloud who will enjoy putting on a dramatic performance of the tale. * Red Reading Hub * Traditional in feel but bright to look at and contemporary in its approach, this highly enjoyable picture book will bear repeated reading. * Andrea Reece, LoveReading *
