The Lovereading4Kids comment

In his inimitable, instantly recognisable style, Axel Scheffler depicts eleven jungle animals across bright half pages, each picture accompanied by jolly descriptive rhyming verses. Flip the pages though and you can create a whole host of crazy creatures, such as the goreleon, half gorilla half chameleon, or the equally bright parrakog – half parakeet, half frog! It’s great fun and each crazy animal creation (there are over 100 possible combinations) will have children giggling. The mixed up rhymes are just as funny while spelling out the new animal names is a great way of developing reading skills. Sturdy pages and spiral binding make this easy for even the littlest to handle. Smashing! ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Axel Scheffler's Flip Flap Jungle by Axel Scheffler

What do you get if you cross a gorilla with a chameleon? Yes, that would be an goeleon! And how about a toucan with a tiger? Why, a touger, of course! A very silly but absolutely compelling book that will charm the whole family.

About the Author

Axel Scheffler

Axel Scheffler was born in Hamburg, Germany. At school he was good at art, but didn't think of a career in illustration until he won a cuddly purple cow in a drawing competition. He moved to England in 1982 to learn English and study illustration at the Bath Academy of Art and then set up home in London. Axel illustrated a number of books for various publishers, and in 1993 he was suggested as the illustrator for Julia Donaldson's first picture book text, A Squash and a Squeeze. This was the start of a hugely successful partnership: their bestselling modern classic, The Gruffalo, has sold over three-and-a-half million copies worldwide, and the TV animation was broadcast on Christmas day 2009. Axel has illustrated a number of other highly successful books, including Muddle Farm, and his books have been translated into 42 languages. Axel lives in London with his partner and young daughter.
