The jungle is a place with scary, strong, powerful, and big animals. Crocodiles, lions, elephants, rhinos, hippos. They are not afraid of anything, until a tiny, little child shows up. They all get scared of him. He cries, poops, howls, pulls, kicks, bites. All the animals decide to do something: to give him what they like the most. So the giraffe gives him leaves, the elephant gives him a cold shower, the vulture brings him up high in a tree, and the anteater feed him ants. The hippo put him in mud and the lion roars at him. The wild child hates all of it and gets even worse. Then the gorilla has a idea, and tries the opposite of what the others do. She gives him a sweet banana, cleans him up, and cradles him in her arms to let him take a nap. The child calms down and sleeps. Although not for too long.
I liked this book a lot, the wild child’s face makes me laugh all the time. It was really sweet to see how the gorilla treated him. Every time we read the book makes want to snuggle up with mommy or daddy.
