The Jungle ABC. New York: Callaway Hyperion, 1998. The text includes letters of the alphabet, paper cutouts, a fifteen-line poem, and a foreword by Iman, a fashion model in the United States who was raised in Somalia.

My two children were fascinated with it for over a year between the ages of 20 mos. to 38 mos. It's great to have something we don't already have in our cultural repertoire.

Collage illustrations present words related to Africa, from antelope. Without the key at the back, I could not identify either bananas, jungle, night, tribe, vase, xylophone, yams (i saw it after i knew) or impalas, kraal, orchids, wildebeest (simply not familiar enough to me).

com: THE JUNGLE AB. Forward by Iman. In Michael Roberts' extraordinary alphabet menagerie, each letter is an original cut-out paper collage that teaches children the alphabet while dazzling readers of all ages with its wit and artistry. Very fine in very fine and bright dust jacket.

From antelope to zebra, Michael Roberts' colorful, lively, and wonderfully graphic cut-out paper collages for The Jungle ABC are a feast for the eyes. His clever, vibrant, eye-catching images have been seen in magazines around the world.

ARTIST'S EASEL about Michael Robert's new picture book "The Jungle AB. Michael Roberts is "The New Yorker"'s director of fashion visuals. The Jungle ABC" conjures Africa through a sophisticated primitivism which evokes the late cutouts of Matisse. Roberts, who has done stints as art or fashion director at a raft of international magazines, is also a photographer, and sometime music-video director, and a T-shirt designer. He started toying with the idea for this book in the '80s, when he was the style director of "Vanity Fair.

About The Jungle Grows Back. Recent years have brought deeply disturbing developments around the globe. American sentiment seems to be leaning increasingly toward withdrawal in the face of such disarray. In this powerful, urgent essay, Robert Kagan elucidates the reasons why American withdrawal would be the worst possible response, based as it is on a fundamental and dangerous misreading of the world.

Iman wrote the introduction. Michael is the Cocteau of the fashion world, Ms. Brown said when she named Mr. Roberts to his New Yorker job in April 1997. Mr. Roberts was born in Buckinghamshire outside London and attended an art school nearby.

Enhanced by cut-paper collages, a boldly illustrated alphabet book introduces a colorful array of jungle animals, ranging from antelopes to zebras.

This book came with a couple minor dents in the hard cover which is to be expected as it was used. The pages looked new and untouched. Its a great collection to our growing library, and has become one of my son's favorite books! Thank you again for the fast shipping and great service. Will buy from you again if needed.

This book is everything I wanted it to be and more. I discovered in reading the book that the pages are actually collages cut from paper rather than paintings. Brilliantly done!

I adore this African-themed ABC book. Absolutely stunning illustrations.
Sorryyy Sorryyy
Outstanding!

The pictures of the Zulu people remind me of some of the images from the fifties. Stylized images. Images that say - "here is a picture of an african". We know that this cannot be, because there is no one picture of an African person just as there is no one picture of an American person. The book DOES say that the people are Zulu, but Zulu people do not live near the jungle. I realize that they are represented in native costume and ARE supposed to be stylized, but isn't representing them this way kind of like saying "African People live in the Jungle with the wild animals." A stereotypical statement right out of the old time hollywood movies.
By the way, don't giraffes and zebras live on the plains, not in the jungle? Also, according to the Amazon review: In the foreword, world-famous model Iman writes about the mystery and power of the African jungle, and how "the tigress inspired my every step; the graceful, erect arch of the giraffe formed my posture."
Doesn't Iman know that the tigress is from Asia?
All that being said, the rhymes in the book are jazzy and fun and the illustrations are a treat (if stereotypical - I can live with that, but aren't we supposed to be educating our children a little better than this?).
Hate it and love it.

If tigresses, elephants, zebras, xylophones, antelopes, and chameleons don't all hail from exactly the same part of the world, that's okay with me. This big, bold, beautiful book is a masterpiece...and a powerful tribute to the spirit of Africa.

Size, color and subject matter are not your run-of -the-mill alphabet book. My two children were fascinated with it for over a year between the ages of 20 mos. to 38 mos. It's great to have something we don't already have in our cultural repertoire. It was a gift, and I was pleasantly surprised by the attraction my children had for it. I think it is a great young children's gift.
