“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
