" The Giant Jumperee is in Rabbit's burrow and no one can get in there to get him out. Cat, Bear and Elephant all try to no avail. Then Mama Frog steps in and says she'll take care of it. Sure enough, she counts to three and that's all it takes.Wonderful illustrations make this a perfect storytime read. " said.

" Rabbit goes home to his borrow and hears a loud, booming voice coming out. The voice claims to be a giant jumperee and is very scary. Rabbit seeks help from his friend cat who is also frightened by the loud voice. Cat calls on help from Bear who asks Elephant to help. Finally Mama Frog marches to the burrow and calls the Giant Jumperee out on the count of three. When the other animals see Baby Frog come out of Rabbit's burrow they laugh at their own silliness. " said.

" Rabbit wants to go home but he hears noises in his burrow and all the other animals that come along are ready to help him get this intruder out of his burrow. But no one sees the jumperee until the very end but the children will have a lot of guesses if you ask them what they think it is. Great use of descriptive verbs and the ending is a surprise. Lots of vivid verbs to read and similar to the Gruffalo picture book. " said.

" Rabbit is afraid of the voice he hears coming from his burrow so he seeks the help of bigger and bigger animal friends only to find that they are scared too. In the end, Mama Frog saves the day and the animals finally figure out who the voice belongs to.I like all the rhyming and the pattern of the story in which bigger and bigger animals attempt to conquer the fearsome beast only to chicken out. I think toddlers and PreK will enjoy this story. " said.

" Rabbit hops towards his burrow but is scared away by the "Giant Jumperee" yelling something frightful at him. The same thing happens with a cat, a bear, and an elephant before Mama Frog makes the Giant Jumperee come out. Then they all see that it was just Baby Frog the whole time. I'm not sure they needed 4 pages to show all the animals laughing in the end... I did like the illustrations, though.Okay for toddler storytimes. " said.

" Allekirjoittaneella saattoi olla suu kokoajan pienessä virneessä tätä kirjaa lukiessa. Lasten ilmeet olivat näkemisen arvoisia kun lukijana eläydyin täysin tekstiin ja näyttelin vuoroin eläinten erilaiset reaktiot ja Hirmu Hyppiväisen uhoamisen. Lopuksi kaikkia nauratti, kun Äitisammakko ja Hirmu Hyppiväinen kävivät sananvaihdon kirjan viimeisillä aukeamilla.Hyvänmielen kirja, joka saattoi olla salaisesti viisas. " said.

"received a copy of this beautiful little children's book in return for my independent honest review. What a beautifully written, beautifully illustrated book. Although it is quite simple in nature it sends a powerful message to children about' not being scared' There are a collection of animals used to create this theme which come to life on the page. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this as an adult and I'm sure you will have many a happy hour spent reading it with the children in your life. It will become a firm favourite I'm sure" said.

" After just a quick glance at the first screen of reviews for this book, it seems the majority of reviewers are unaware that this story is very similar to Who's in Rabbit's House?: A Masai Tale, but there is no mention anywhere in the book, in the blurb or verso that this book is a simplified version of the Masai folktale. I did like the large illustrations, and the story has been simplified enough to share with preschool children, but the author should have acknowledged the source somewhere. " said.
