What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

A witty jungle romp for the adventurer in every kid Safari etiquette can be tricky. Fortunately, our trusty narrator can help. Sort of. From what to do if an elephant stands on your foot (“Keep calm. Panicking will only startle it!”) to how to escape the attentions of a crocodile (“Well? What are you waiting for? Wave your arms around and shout for help!”), our plucky guide leads our unlucky hero on a jungle adventure, barely avoiding tigers, a rhino, snakes, and–uh-oh. What’s that? Well thank heavens the monkeys are friendly at least! Debut author Michelle Robinson teams with bestseller Peter H. Reynolds for a Monster at the End of This Book-style romp, culminating in a hilarious finish that will send readers–and our hapless hero–right back to the beginning for more.
