  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dolly | 1/25/2014

    " Fantastic illustrations and a humorous tale about being happy with who you are make this a great story to read aloud to children. It's also fun to sit and stare at the pictures to see how all the animals have changed (including the dragonfly, snake, chameleon and others) and to find the silhouette of the wildebeest on each page. "

    " nice about not being jealous or prejudgiced. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Wheatley | 1/21/2014

    " Sam really liked this one. The smallest warthog in Africa is tired of being teased by his bigger relatives and the beautiful Other Animals (a zebra, elephant, giraffe, rhino, cheetah, and a crested crane). An old wildebeest gives the warthog some magic drums, which he uses to wish for a change. The next morning, the markings of the Other Animals are gone, leaving them a dull brown. Meanwhile, the other warthogs wake up with new, beautiful markings. The smallest warthog sees that this is not really what he wished for, so he takes our his drums and tries again that night. In the morning, he sees the Other Animals have markings again, but they're on the wrong animals! This is Sam's favorite part. The bird with the elephant trunk is pretty hilarious. The warthogs are getting tired of their new attributes, which have become exaggerated and uncomfortable. Everyone agrees they were happier before, so the smallest warthog makes one last wish, which puts everything right again. "

    " This is a cute book about accepting different talents. The pictures are amazing and there are little things to find hidden in the pictures. James liked me to bounce him up and down and pat his lap when the little wart hog was playing the drums. "Boom ba Boom Boom" I borrowed it from the library and it was a nice change from the books that we own. "

    " I thought it was both sweet and hilarious, but the hidden objects were usually too difficult for my older eyes to make out. I appreciated the pronunciation guide in the back, and the clues to the extra details, too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosanna | 12/23/2013

    " Had to increase my rating of this book... While I wasn't an enormous fan, my son is! I can't tell you how many times he's brought it to me to read. "

    " I just adore Graeme Base's illustrations. They are so splendidly detailed and alive. The story is a bit long and I have a hard time pronouncing the names of all the animals. But it is a fun story. "

    " This Base book is a bit easier for kids to find the hidden pictures, but as usual the storyline holds a young child's interest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ilana Waters | 8/20/2012

    " Love the way Graeme Base combines all the different animal markings--on the WRONG animals! He does it over and over again throughout the entire book; his creativity never fails to astound me. Don't understand what I mean? Guess you'll just have to read "Jungle Drums" and find out! ;-) "

    " A warthog is teased because he is small. So a wise wildebeest gives him magical bongoes that provide him with wishes. He wishes that the other animals change appearance with hilarious results.......

    The illustrations are very nice and there is a lot to look at in them. "
