'Little Tails in the Jungle' is by the same team that has done the Love series (The Tiger, The Lion, The Fox, etc.), so I looked forward to reading this. This is an educational comic for younger readers with some of the same high quality animal art of the other series.
Our narrators are a puppy named Chipper and a squirrel named Squizzo. We follow them on a journey to different jungles throughout the world to learn about animals. Their first stop is the African jungle where they see an okapi, bugs, gorillas and others. Then it's off to the Amazon and then to the jungles of Asia.
The drawings of Chipper and Squizzo are comic strips that run along the edge of the page. The jungles and animals are all done in Federico Bertolucci's rich, colorful style. The animals here are a bit more expressive than in the Love series, but these are wonderful paintings. The book finishes with information about the animals in the book. I thought the two-tone comic contrasted strangely with the full color comics, but it's a book for young animal lovers to read and enjoy.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Magnetic Press, Diamond Book Distributors, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
