KIRKUS REVIEW

In the African jungle full of colorful foliage and lush fruit, Beatrice sets off to visit her granddad with a beautiful bunch of bananas. Along the way she meets a giraffe that accidentally whisks the bananas off Beatrice’s head and into the steam. He gives her flowers to replace her gift. But the flowers get smashed when the bees arrive, and more mishaps follow her along the trail, until she is left with a single feather from a parrot; in a final mishap, the feather is blown away when the elephant she meets sneezes. But like the others, the elephant replaces her gift for her granddad—this time the replacement is a beautiful bunch of bananas. This gentle tale will delight young readers (and listeners). (Picture book/folktale. 2-6)
