[Review] The Giant Jumperee by Julia Donaldson

The Giant Jumperee
by Julia Donaldson

Who doesn’t love Julia’s books? – The Gruffalo and Room on the Broom are huge bedtime favourite for my kids and The Giant Jumperee is quickly being added to that list!

The story follows Rabbit who upon hearing a mysterious voice coming from his burrow enlists his other animal friends – Cat, Bear & Elephant, to get the Giant Jumperee out of the burrow. They are all scared of the mysterious voice in the burrow until Mrs Frog comes along and proves that there is nothing to be scared of at all.

I love the illustrations in this book and true to Julia’s format the words are repetitive and engaging that kids will love this story just as much as the others she has written.
