Product Details


“The book’s earth-toned illustrations are stunning: Each page is packed with movement and atmosphere, and the characters’ faces are wonderfully expressive. The text is poetic, rhythmic, and, at times, humorous.”Kirkus Reviews  
“As Tiger traverses the forest, other animals take a chance and accompany the big cat and his gentle ‘friend,’ adding their voices to Tiger’s ‘ Rrrrrrrrrrhhh’ and Drum’s ‘Rum pum pum.’ Monkey, Rhino, Parrot, Chameleon, and Elephant make up the rest of the parade through the lush green-and-gold Indian forest. The phrase ‘And they went along and went along and went along the road’ recurs, giving the story the feel of a folktale.”Booklist 
“The classic folkloric markers help this cumulative neo-tale along with lulling rhythm and inviting animal characters, and the sound effects of the gathering animals cry out, literally, for audience participation. . . . This has storytime written all over it, and it could also be a creative addition to a music class”Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
