Normal in the jungle but look closely and you will see that none of the animals or the other creatures watching from the trees are uite the way they were when the book began Look even closer and you will also find Old Nyumbu the Wildebeest hidden somewhere on every spread Jungle Drums is a book to be read over and over again The thing I remember loving about Animalia and Eleventh Hour from my childhood was the really detailed intricate illustrations that cleverly added to the written plot I remember staring for hours finding all of the details in the illustrations linking the illustrations to the written plot and finding all the unexpected elementsThis book didn t live up to those perhaps inflated memories The illustrations are spectacular by any standards Graeme is a true illustrative genius But the book would work as a story even without the illustrations The illustrations are much simpler than the Graeme Base I remember with the main character animals taking the vast majority of the pages with only the occasional relatively unexpected dragon fly or lizard to spotThe library book version I had was missing the critical puzzle explanation page which will have impacted my enjoyment of this bookThe story is interesting and provides insight into an important moral I love the use of authentic African names for all the animals they are Bantu language group names my African language knowledge doesn t allow me to be specific maybe they are Swahili It such a refreshing difference compared with Jill Murphy s elephants Mr and Mrs Large Laura Lester Luke and baby It continues the moral of acceptance of difference beyond the written story of acceptance of different appearances to expanding the horizons of possible names and through this with some parental encouragement into the languages of these names and the cultures of the people who speak them
