Review: The Giant Jumperee by Julia Donaldson

The Giant JumpereeRabbit was hopping home one day when he heard a loud voice coming from inside his burrow.

When Rabbit's friends Cat, Bear and Elephant come to help they are each scared away in turn by the mysterious voice.

He can squash you like a flee
He will sting you like a bee
And he's taller than a tree!

But who is the Giant Jumperee?

A new read-aloud classic from internationally bestselling author Julia Donaldson, beautifully brought to life by award-winning illustrator Helen Oxenbury.

Shona's review 4 of 5 stars

My daughters are huge fans of The Gruffalo, and while they may be too big for The Giant Jumperee I jumped at the chance to read this with them.

My youngest (at 8 years old) likes to pretend that she's too big to read with mum anymore but she loved reading this with me, its been quite some time since we found a book we could enjoy together, infact the last books we did enjoy together were The Gruffalo and We're going on a Bear Hunt, and here we have the best of both books in this one, written by the author of The Gruffalo and illustrated by the same person who illustrated Bear Hunt.

We had lots of fun guessing who or what they Giant Jumperee could be. I think the kindle version (or at least my paperwhite version) loses something on the black and white screen, but I think its safe to say that we will be looking to get a full colour print copy of this to add to our library of family favourites.
