 In The Jungle ($9.95; Oct. 1996; 14 pp.; 0-316-11821-4): Tangerine orangutans, banana-billed toucans, and other jungle critters flit, scamper, and hide in the green leaves of this pop-up jungle. This entry in the Hide and Seek series makes exploring the jungle environment fun and informative; among the good surprises are the spiders that suddenly descend from the treetops. The gregarious drawings are aimed at young viewers, whose only frustration may be the stiffness of some of the paper engineering. (Pop-up. 3-5)
