“The cover of this book alone is worth the price. Rohmann's stunning wood-block style prints are a perfect complement to this great read-aloud tale. Rhythmic prose tells of the chain of events as one by one the animals fall into a jungle pit with the lurking threat of tigers nearby. Children will love the humor and tension and the repeated chorus of 'Oh, No!' as the story comes to a fitting end.”
— Leslie Reiner, Inkwood Books, Tampa, FL

Kirkus Reviews Best of Children's Books 2012

Starred Review, School Library Journal, August 1, 2012:
“Fleming’s bouncing rhymes and repeated lines…entice readers into an enjoyable delivery complete with snarled sound effects and onomatopoeic exclamations.”

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, July 9, 2012:
“It’s a book with the feel of an older classic—and it may well become one.”

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, May 15, 2012:
“With text that begs to be read aloud and sumptuous illustrations made by a master printmaker, this picture book reads like an instant classic . . . Oh, yes! This is a terrific new picture book.”
