We are going to take a trip, a safari, to Africa and you are going to meet some wonderful creatures who might scare you, which might slap your cheeks, eat your lunch, lick you, tickle you, snuffle you, and make you giggle. As you turn the pages of this wonderful pop-up book you will find yourself coming face to face with six creatures.
It begins with the elephant flapping its large ears. Then there is the lion who may roar at you. Next there is the giraffe with its blue tongue and the rhino with its pointed horns. The rhino is followed by the yawning hippo and finally there is the chattering chimpanzee.
Large format pop-up animals painted in rich colors seems to practically jump off the pages of this engaging book. Amusing rhymes perfectly compliment the pop-ups, capturing the essence of the animals and making it possible to imagine what it might be really like to come face to face with these fascinating creatures.
