What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Two of the world’s most celebrated picture book creators, Julia Donaldson and Helen Oxenbury, team up for the first time in this jaunty animal fable for fans of Room on the Broom and We’re Going on a Bear Hunt

Rabbit arrives home one day to hear a loud voice coming from inside his burrow:

“I’m the Giant Jumperee and I’m scary as can be!” shouts the stranger.

Rabbit’s friends Cat, Bear, and Elephant come to help, but they’re no match for the mysterious, booming voice. But who is the Giant Jumperee? Find out in this new read-aloud classic from internationally bestselling author Julia Donaldson, beautifully brought to life by award-winning illustrator Helen Oxenbury.

4.0 / 7.0

I was honestly expecting a lot more from Julia Donadson and Helen Oxenbury (albeit the illustrations are SUPER cute). The text of the story flip flops back and forth between rhyming and not rhyming, and the end is a little silly, but also not quite silly enough.
