KIRKUS REVIEW

Big, colorful animals pop out from beneath big, sturdy flaps in this safari for the Snugli set.

There are occasional hints in the rhymes of “nature red in tooth and claw”: “Who’s lying in the yellow grass with peeking, watchful eyes? / It’s Lion who’s about to pounce—to little Snake’s surprise!” Despite this, the art’s sunny colors and smiling animals have a properly buoyant effect. The flaps, which nearly fill each alternating page, lift up, down or sideways to reveal said Lion, a banana-throwing Monkey, a splashing Elephant, a Giraffe and, for a climactic thrill, a “snippy-snappy Crocodile” with upthrust, closing jaws. Though at just five spreads this outing is a short one, the heavy card stock on which it is printed and the simple architecture of the pop-ups ensure reasonable durability (for the volume, if not that snake). Cheep Cheep Pop-Up Fun publishes simultaneously and features a rather less-fraught setting: a barnyard.

Toddlers and young preschoolers will snap this up. (Pop-up picture book. 3-4)
