In Hungry Jungle, children are presented with a series of bright and engaging jungle animals, each with their mouth open (a v-fold pop-up), eagerly awaiting a tasty treat. The child can choose which snack (a ‘dangly' hanging from the spine of the book) they will feed to each animal.

Hungry Jungle is a fun, interactive board book in which children can choose what to feed the pop-out jungle animals - pick from four 'dangly' food items, hanging from the spine of the book.

Gorilla, Toucan, Frog and Sloth are all hungry, but what will you feed them? In this innovative title, you get to decide! The animals wait with with their mouths open (a cleverly designed v-fold pop-up), eagerly awaiting a tasty treat. Children can choose which snack (a 'dangly' hanging from the spine of the book) they will feed to each animal. Bright and bold colours and characterful illustrations help bring this title to life, as children can play with the different permutations again and again!Feeding Time is a delightful series of pre-school books which encourage young children to engage with the book and converse with the parent or carer, form connections between the animal characters and what they like to eat, and to practice hand-eye coordination through play. They can choose to either pick the correct food to give each animal, or can engage in 'silly play' by offering knowingly inappropriate foods to each character.
