What's in the Jungle

Peter S. Seymour. Henry Holt & Company, $10.95 (32pp) ISBN 978-0-8050-0688-9

In this Lift-the-Flap Pop-up Book, readers travel through the jungle and encounter toucans and their chicks veiled behind leaves and a zebra peeking through the vines, among others. The sense of discovery turns into surprise and even a little apprehension when a crocodile extends its open mouth far outside the page, followed by a climactic pop-up of a tiger's face. The illustrations and design elements conjure up the experience of adventure and uncertainty; the sea-green haze of jungle growth conceals all manner of life, color and motion. Ages 2-5. (April)
