Deep in the Jungle book. Children will roar with laughter as a jungle bully gets his well-deserved comeuppance and becomes a jungle pussycat in Dan Yaccarino's hilarious tongue-in-cheek fable.

Deep in the Jungle book.

Dan Yaccarino (born May 20, 1965) is an American author, illustrator and animated series producer known for his animated series, children’s books and award-winning imagery. Growing up in his home in Clifton, NJ, Yaccarino was influenced by a combination of advertising, package design, comic books, vintage animation, toys, and old movies. I’m not really inspired by other children’s book authors and illustrators, Yaccarino was quoted in saying, "as much as people from other fields.

The Lord of the Jungle is busy lording over it all: the monkeys fan him, the elephants . the book, liberate the animals, and then rein in his arrogance.

The Lord of the Jungle is busy lording over it all: the monkeys fan him, the elephants provide shade, the leopards fetch. his food, and the gorillas tend to his mane-or else he will eat them. Of course, as Yaccarino dryly summarizes, "The animals. couldn't stand him one bi. One day a man is spied strolling through the jungle. They don't call it a "pride" of lions for nothing. comes with a toothsome accompaniment of Yaccarino's retro art, with its edge of goofiness and deep-dish color. Pub Date: March 1st, 2000.

Dan Yaccarino's illustrations of animals and people, rather geometric in shape and in matte primary colors, goes perfectly with the simple story line of a lion who leaves his wild home for fame at the circus

Dan Yaccarino's illustrations of animals and people, rather geometric in shape and in matte primary colors, goes perfectly with the simple story line of a lion who leaves his wild home for fame at the circus. The lion, who at first regards the man he meets as a 'lovely dinner', is flattered by the man and persuaded to be a 'big star'.

A high-tech robot boy enjoys a day of low-tech fun on the farm. Doug and his parents are off to visit the grandbots. But when their journey is interrupted by some sheep in the road, Doug goes from downloading information about farm animals to actually interacting with them!

A high-tech robot boy enjoys a day of low-tech fun on the farm. But when their journey is interrupted by some sheep in the road, Doug goes from downloading information about farm animals to actually interacting with them! Doug gets to learn by doing-he herds sheep, milks a cow, gathers eggs, and then uses good old-fashioned "horse sense" to get their car back on the road

When the king of the jungle gets bored with constantly giving orders to all the animals, he happily takes an offer to become the star of the circus, yet once there, he realizes that he is merely a servant and so returns home whereupon he apologizes for having been so mean to everyone. Reprint.
  • This book has a terrible storyline and I don't even mean about the lion eating people, I didn't mind that part. It's possibly supposed to teach a lesson in humility, I guess, but it doesn't do that very well. This is definitely one I won't be reading my 4 year old again.

  • If I could give this book a zero I would. My 5 year old was not impressed It is also very inappropriate on so many level. I should have pre read this before reading it too her. Do not buy this book! The author has to be a twisted person to be writing this kind of stuff for children

  • My nearly three year old loves this book; she asks for it every night and repeats key phrases. She finds the lion eating the men funny rather than scary. It looses stars because the writing and sentence structure isn't my favorite to read out loud.

  • OK, yes, the lion does eat the lion tamer, but it's not gory in ANY way, and really, he had it coming (wink). Don't be put off by this! It's really a great story, nicely illustrated, and teaches a good lesson. My 4yo twins understood that eating your oppressor is not an acceptable approach in real life--they understood the humor, and really got the lesson that being bossy is not the way to go through life if you want to have friends. I highly recommend this one.

  • Two stars for the illustrations. Zero stars for the story line. I started reading this to my son without pre-reading it before hand (my mistake). I was highly uncomfortable with the fact that the lion eats the tamer and the guy at the end and it's all okay. My 3 year old is pretty sensitive to that kind of thing. If your kid likes reading about people getting eaten and it doesn't phase them go for it. Otherwise skip it.

  • I got this for my 2 1/2yr old, she loves it! The illustrations are catchy and the content, well its allabout bossiness and where it gets ya,,,,
    this book is humourously different! yeah, the lion eats the tamer, but its all about what goes around comes around....the lion learns that friends are more important than anything! Great book!

  • Can you give a book negative stars? This book is horrible on so many levels! But let's start with this one: the complete disregard for human life. A book that teaches children that animals are more important than people. It is sick, twisted and wrong. The lion tamer brings a lion from his natural environment to be in the circus. But that bad, bad man will not give credit to the lion. He takes it all for himself. So, the Lion eats him and goes home. This whole book focuses on the way the poor bully lion is treated. It makes you feel sorry for him as a leash is put on him and he has to go in a cage, then have a whip cracked at him, oh, but worst of all is that the tamer gets all the flowers and the lion gets none. But the tamer? What is the worst that happens to him? Does he go to jail for mistreatment of animals? No! He is eaten. No emotion at all for the human, just for the poor lion. Really? Pure Left wing animal activist nonsense! Went into the trash. Don't waste the money.

  • I was at first very interested in this book- hoping that it would be of value for teaching my nephew how to deal with his roaring at his sisters in order to get his way. After reading it a few times- I am more and more uncomfortable with the message of the lion eating/killing the people in order to solve his problems. Killing is not a lesson that I want to offer as the solution to the problems of this world.
