‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)
by Tatsuhide Matsuoka
Age Range: Under_5
This bright, visual board book by award-winning Japanese author, Tatsuhide Matsuoka is a playful and joyful parade of jumping animals to share with babies and toddlers. “A frog jumps.” “Boing.” followed by a host of other animals including a kitten, dog, grasshopper, rabbit and even a snail … “Uhm. Maybe not.” Matsuoka’s illustrations are accurately rendered anatomically and exude both expression and colour. Rather than the normal format of the spine on the left-hand-side, the design has the spine at the top of the book allowing for the double-page artwork to enhance the jumping animals.
Having sold over 500,000 copies in Japan, JUMP! is a fun book that is sure to delight UK readers with its simple concept and delightfully comical animals.
