Praise for the book:
“Giles Andreae’s vibrant collection of animal poems [and the] glorious, glowing illustrations by David Wojtowycz match perfectly.” The Guardian
“It’s a jungle in here! Join this rhyming safari and meet everyone from the elephant to the gangly giraffe, and maybe even the terrible tiger. Energetic verses and brilliant artwork make this exuberant introduction to a host of wild animals pounce to life.” – goodreads.com
“This is a lovely book which encourages a real sense of fun in its language as well as being a charming activity book to enjoy during bedtime reads or daytime snuggles. You can start to share a book like this with your child from six months, but it will really come into its own between 18 months and three years.” - thinkbaby.co.uk
“We love Giles Andreae’s books. So fun, informative and bright. A real winner with children 4-8” – jacketflap.com

Minor Bug Fixes
Where are the rest of them..?
Not a terrible app at all and a decent enough companion to the book, although it's hard to explain to my 3 year old why half of the animals are missing! Seems a litte slack. Would also have expected more games considering it's a paid app - the two-piece jigsaws kinda only held my son's attention for minutes whilst many of the free apps out there could easily entertain him for hours if I let him stay on the iPad that long!
Rumble in the Jungle
Great little app. My 3yr old loves it. He has the book so its great to have this interactive app which is effectively an interactive book. Would be even better if there were more little games/puzzles included.
Rumble in the Jungle
Brilliant! My 3 year old has the book at home and loves playing with the app after reading. Plus it kept her entertained while stuck in a horrendous traffic jam so it definitely gets my thumbs up!!
