I didn’t really expect this to become one of the books my son would want repeated, but after we checked it out from the library, he asked for it every night for a week.

Here is a royal romp through a tongue-twisting paradise. 32 full-color illustrations. Reading and listening to the book are equally delightful. The pictures are lush and beautiful.

I got this book at the Midland County Library when my now 21 year old daughter was preschool age. I was ordering books for my classroom (6th grade), thought of it, and just had to have it. Who can resist a story about whimsical world leaders adventuring through the jungle on a "wild, wet night"? Toward the end they all dance to the sound of a single gong and "bibble, babble, bubble to the bing, bang, bong!" So much fun. My students laughed at how much I enjoyed reading the book to them, but they couldn't resist repeating that alliterative line over and over the rest of the day. Great examples of alliteration and onomatopoeia, I can't decide which illustration I like best: the one with the big old hippo bootie or the absolutely gorgeous tiger close up. If you have kids or teach kids, you gotta get this book. It's amazing.

You just can't go wrong with Margaret Mahy. My, now adult, daughter loved them all, so I got this for my grandson and I can't wait until he is ready for The Great Piratical Rumbustification! If you like word play and gorgeous illustrations, you will have fun reading this to a 3+.

I love the lyrical verses of this picture books. I pass out stencils of elephants to my class. They trace the elephants and then add details to make them look like elephants on parade in India.

I love music. This book is about as lyrical as you can get without a musical staff and notes.

17 Kings and 42 Elephants is a rollicking romp through brilliantly illustrated pages. The rhythm of the rhyme, the alliteration and the made up words all combine delightfully in this wonderful children's book.

One of my favorite pages:
Watchers in the jungle, moist and mistalline,
Bibble-bubble-babbled to the bing-bang-bong!

Just makes me smile! :D

I love this book. I just ordered it for a friend's baby shower.

This is an amazing book full of great words that will make your toungue twist. The illustrations support the text with vibrant artistic flare. This is a must for all school libraries and parents with young children. Children who are exposed this rich vocabulary will extend their own sense of words. Parents and teachers should read the text at least once before reading it aloud...some of the words are tricky to say and keep the rhythm of the story flowing.
perfect for my math lesson
