This extraordinary new title from acclaimed illustrator Maurice Pledger features five adorable 3-D pop-up scenes enhanced with real sounds that let young adventurers see and hear the creatures that live in the depths of the jungle. Maurice Pledger’s stunning artwork is brought to life with authentic animal sounds and adorable pop-ups. Noisy Nature: In the Jungle delights children for hours on end with pop-up panoramas that include a giant elephant using his trunk to blow a trumpeting sound, a chatty parrot letting out a noisy squawk, a hairy orangutan swinging high in the trees and calling out ooh-ooh, a hungry frog diving into the pond and croaking, and a sneaky tiger growling at her prey!
Maurice Pledger is an internationally-acclaimed artist known for his realistic and detailed illustrations of animals and wildlife. He's had no formal art training, but achieves the realism and detail in his beautiful artwork by spending hours in the field observing, sketching, and studying his subjects in their natural environment. First published at age 17, he has since had his illustrations featured on greeting cards, prints, gifts, and books. He has created several successful series, including Sounds of the Wild, Peek-and-Find, Nature Trails, and Pledger Sticker Books. He was the recipient of the 1992 Francis Williams Illustration Award for the Best Descriptive Illustration. This honor is given only once every 5 years by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
