Bustle in the Bushes by Giles Andreae

Come learn more about the bugs in your bushes with Bustle in the Bushes by Giles Andreae.

In the latest tiger tales collaboration from author Giles Andreae and illustrator David Wojtowycz, young readers get a glimpse into the wiggly, creepy, crawly bugs they can find in their backyards. Geared toward readers ages 3 – 7, the author’s lyrical prose is coupled withthe artist’s bold, vibrant artwork that has been their trademark since the beginning. The adorable cover begs young readers to pick up the book and the fun rhymes keep her turning the pages. From ants to caterpillars to worms and more, your child will enjoy some investigating after reading this one.

I’ve loved the other books from this team that I’ve read–Commotion in the Ocean, Rumble in the Jungle, and ABC Animal Jamboree. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next.

Commotion in the Ocean and Rumble in the Jungle by Giles Andreae

Commotion in the Ocean and Rumble in the Jungle are two rhyming books by Giles Andreae. We reviewed Andreae’s ABC Animal Jamboree last fall. In some ways these books are similar. Again we are about animals and again the rhymes and zany and fun. Combine that with the vibrant and silly artwork provided by David Wojtowycz, and you’re sure to have a winner.

Not only do I love the bold use of color on the front covers, these board books are a great size (7 3/4″ x 9 7/8″). They are fun to sit or lay down on the floor with and share the rhymes with your loved ones. I also like the consistency between these two books. They both open in a similar fashion:

“There’s a curious commotion

At the bottom of the ocean.

I think we ought to take a look.”

“There’s a rumble in the jungle,

There’s a whisper in the trees,

The animals are waking up

And rustling the leaves.”

I look forward to more collaborations from Andreae and Wojtowcyz.
