Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

All the animals are running away, but what are they afraid of? Find out in this action-packed book that will have all little children wanting to turn the pages and join in. It's simple, it's fun, it's thought provoking, and the surprise ending brings it right back to the beginning - to be enjoyed all over again!

Graphic designer and illustrator Edward Gibbs has always sought to communicate meaningful ideas in the simplest way. With a seemingly effortless touch, in this book and its companion The Acorn, he introduces educational themes and concepts (food chains, fear, ecosystems) in a visual, fun, and satisfying romp for the very young.

Review:

"A call-and-response rhyme describes a succession of jungle animals, each fleeing from the animal that came before it. The commotion starts with a bee that appears on the cover with glistening fabric wings: 'Little bee, little bee... why do you flee?/ Because there's a hungry frog chasing me!' The hungry frog is hopping away from a 'scary snake,' which is pursued by a mongoose who's fleeing a lion, after which follows a hunter. Gibbs's fluid ink scrawls create a sense of movement and individualize the characters, and a surprise ending brings the chase full-circle. Ages 3 — up." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
