"A great new adventure for Elmer and his animal friends."
Julia Eccleshare, Lovereading||"Elmer is still the same daring, caring eccentric he has been for twenty five years. McKee's jungle is as vibrant and busy as ever. And his storytelling is as expertly paced."
Books for Keeps||"This visually vibrant story subtly and sensitively shows children how fears are often unfounded."
Good Book Guide||"There is pandemonium in the jungle. I can promise you that you will never guess who or what caused the commotion, but you will love finding out with curious young readers!"
EYE||"McKee's brightly coloured illustrations and expressive animals will catch the attention of children. This story would make a good read-aloud."
