Synopsis

Roar! by Margaret Mayo

Bold lions love roar, roar, roaring, While cubs play - racing, chasing . . . Young children will love meeting all the wild and wonderful animals in this fun-packed picture-book safari, with galloping zebras, prowling tigers, water-squirting elephants, jumping kangaroos and more! With bright, bold artwork and bouncy rhyming text.

Reviews

The stunningly bright pictures of animals are just as entertaining as the words * The Northern Echo * Bright colours combine with lively, noisy words to make this book about wild animals a real interactive pleasure ... perfect for groups of children * Carousel * Ayliffe's cut-paper illustrations nearly jump off the page -- their simplicity might encourage young listeners to make their own pictures with cut outs -- and each spread is an appealing riot of colour * Kirkus * young children will love meeting all the wild and wonderful animals in this fun-packed picture book * Family Interest Magazine * A delightful romp through the animal kingdom * School Librarian * A cheerful and colourful book for young children * Child Education *
