Jungle Drums

E normal in the jungle but look closely and you will see that none of the animals or the other creatures watching from the trees are uite the way they were when the book began Look even closer and you will also find Old Nyumbu the Wildebeest hidden somewhere on every spread Jungle Drums is a book to be read over and over aga. The thing I remember loving about Animalia and Eleventh Hour from my childhood was the really detailed intricate illustrations that cleverly added to the written plot I remember staring for hours finding all of the details in the illustrations linking the illustrations to the written plot and finding all the unexpected elementsThis book didn t live up to those perhaps inflated memories The illustrations are spectacular by any standards Graeme is a true illustrative genius But the book would work as a story even without the illustrations The illustrations are much simpler than the Graeme Base I remember with the main character animals taking the vast majority of the pages with only the occasional relatively unexpected dragon fly or lizard to spotThe library book version I had was missing the critical puzzle explanation page which will have impacted my enjoyment of this bookThe story is interesting and provides insight into an important moral I love the use of authentic African names for all the animals they are Bantu language group names my African language knowledge doesn t allow me to be specific maybe they are Swahili It such a refreshing difference compared with Jill Murphy s elephants Mr and Mrs Large Laura Lester Luke and baby It continues the moral of acceptance of difference beyond the written story of acceptance of different appearances to expanding the horizons of possible names and through this with some parental encouragement into the languages of these names and the cultures of the people who speak them

review Jungle Drums

Ut to come true But all the animals of the jungle are in for a BIG surprise as Ngiri's wish is granted in a most unexpected way In the end the gentle message that inner beauty and change is important than outer beauty rings true In true Graeme Base style there is an added surprise at the end of the book Everything seems to b. When Ngiri Mdogo the smallest warthog in Africa is tired of being picked on by all the other warthogs he crosses the river to where all the animals with stunning spots striking stripes impressive horns curly trunks graceful necks and gorgeous plumage live Hoping to make new friends he is only disappointed when they make fun of him for not only being small but plain as well When the wise wildebeest Nyumbu finds Ngiri crying he complains of all the teasing Nyumbu gives him a set of bongo drums that have the ability to grant wishes as they are played But she warns him that they may come true The next morning the coats have changed on all the animals The once beautiful animals have now become plain and the warthogs now have the stunning spots striking stripes impressive horns curly trunks graceful necks and gorgeous plumage But still Ngiri is the same All the warthogs continue to tease him That night Ngiri plays the magic Bongos a second time awaking the next morning to find that all the animals across the river have their stripes spots trunks etc back but something is wrong Everything is on the wrong animal At the same time the warthogs have become like the other animals as their horns paws trunks necks and feathers have grown to their normal size Unable to cope with any of this the animals march across the river to one another angry Ngiri then makes it known that it was his fault and explains his magic bongos He promises to use his third wish to fix it all The next morning all has returned to normal but now no one is teasing Ngiri and everyone realizes how happy they are to be themselves A very enchanting story told in an unfamiliar setting for most children Using safari animals as an attraction to the book Base has created a work that reinforces self confidence and self esteem One can also note the importance for respecting others and understanding differences in people that make them solemnly uniue to the world Base also uses his illustrations to signal repetitional reading of the book In the author notes at the end of the last page we find out that there are several hidden surprises and signs to look for in each of the illustrations Very intriguing but to find the answers you must read it yourself
