The Jungle Run by Tony Mitton and Guy Parker-Rees. Cub shows up to take her place in the Jungle Run, but the others say “You’re too small to race.” Parrot squawks to start the fun as the animals run off, leaving poor Cub in a cloud of dust. As they enter the clearing, the larger animals get tangled and twisted in the big vine net, while Cub is able to slip straight through, taking the lead. Next, Cub swings across the stream, leaving poor elephant being used as a stepping stone, lying in the water. Finally, they all grab a mat at the top of the slide to surf to the bottom where the finish line awaits them. Elephant’s mat goes out of control–he loses his balance and starts to roll, bringing all the animals into one big whirl. They all land safely in the lake at the finish, where there’s juice and cake. But where is Cub? This is a book you’ll enjoy reading again and again, as children search high and low to spot all the animals following the race. See this book listed in our catalog
