Synopsis

The Jungle Grapevine by Alex Beard

In his children's book debut, fine artist Alex Beard brings to life an African savannah filled with humour and misunderstandings. When Bird mixes up something Turtle says, he accidentally starts a rumour about the watering hole drying up. One misunderstanding leads to another, with animals making their own hilarious assumptions. No one is hearing anything right! Chaos spreads and the animals are soon in an uproar from one end of the jungle to the other. Elephant is trumpeting, Croc is snapping and the Flamingoes are fleeing! Beard's story will have every child wondering if peace can ever be restored in the animal kingdom. Alex Beard has two galleries, one in New Orleans and the other in New York City. Puzzles based on the The Jungle Grapevine will be launched in conjunction with this book in fall 2009.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
