Quick Book Review: ‘The Giant Jumperee’ by Julia Donaldson and Helen Oxenbury

With a winning combo of author and illustrator, The Giant Jumperee is available in hardback and published by Puffin.

“The Giant Jumperee is as scary as can be. But he’s not actually scary, he’s just funny. I liked Rabbit the best and Mummy Frog the next best in the story. We have read it every day.”

(Drummond, aged 3)
