Another wonderful children's book or gift by Alexandra Adlawan
How long is a giraffe’s tongue? How many muscles does an African elephant’s trunk have? What does a binturong small like? Learn all this and more with Maddie and Albert as they travel through the backyard jungle on the animal adventure of a lifetime. “Maddie and Albert’s zany encounters with some of Earth’s precious wildlife made me laugh out loud. Kids – and adults – will love Backyard Jungle. The story is witty and hilarious as well as cleverly illustrated in a graphic novel format, which lends itself to the author’s great storytelling talents. As a Zoo person, I appreciate the accuracy of the animal facts, and was thrilled to see a few lesser-known animals, such as a Parson’s chameleon and quokka, included in the fun.” Georgeanne Irvine, author of the Hope and Inspiration book collection that features true animal tales, published by the San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance Press.
Have a look at some of the kind words that have been shared about Alexandra Adlawan’s creative works.
Our kids, ages 3 and 5, really enjoy this story. My three year old likes the silly, imaginative parts of the story. My five year old likes when Maddie and Albert prentend they are on Safari. And I like the message at the end of the book. This book is Fun, creative, and imaginative, and one we like reading often. We looked forward to the next installment!
We bought this for our 5-year-old niece who loves it - she wanted it read to her over and over until she memorized it and now "reads" it to others. We love the artwork, the characters, and the story with its message of celebrating one another's differences - a beautiful message for today's world.
In "Wild Imagination" the two young central characters, Maddie and Albert, find an unlikely friendship with each other. This book is "wildly imaginative," adventurous, heart warming, and will bring a smile to your face. The character drawings are fantastic and creative.
I bought this book as an "at Nana's house" book. My 5-year-old grandson really enjoys it and I love reading it to him. Can''t wait until the baby is old enough to sit on my lap and have story time!
Loved this book. Vibrant illustrations and expressive characters brought the dialogue and adventures to life. My 6-year old grandson and I lingered over and enjoyed every page.
As an educator, parent and grandparent, I enjoyed reading this story and look forward to the next installment. I purchased several copies for friends and family.
This book is imaginative, insightful, and full of color. Alexandra Adlawan accomplishes the telling and illustration of this great book!
Imaginative, clever, colorful, and funny for adults as well as children. All this an invites kids to imagine, dream and play with kindness and caring.
