There’s a rumble in the jungle as the jungle version of Britain’s Got Talent rolls in! Everyone is excited and practices their many skills in hopes of making the big time. Tiny Ant also practices, but no one expects him to do anything well, and he gets bullied in a reference to the sad time that Susan Boyle experienced in her first time on the show. The fact that she won (quite rightly) is also referenced in this story, as Tiny Ant sings his tiny heart out, whilst all the rest of the animals come a cropper. The illustrations are an explosion of colour and detail as the lion’s costume splits, monkey’s juggling bananas end up in the audience, and the skunk ‘makes an awful pong’ as he tries to play his trumpet. This reviewer particularly enjoyed the pictures at the beginning and end of the book, with Tiny Ant making his way out of and back to his underground home. Kids are going to love this. It’s laugh-out-loud funny, and the rhyming couplets will appeal too. Great fun if a tad obvious.
