Jazzy the lemur and Mama JoJo love to play hide-and-seek in the jungle. As little readers help search for Jazzy – lured by die-cut windows showing glimpses of what’s to come-they also explore a bold new world full of vivid tropical colors and lively jungle creatures. Featuring an all-new format, this innovative, thirty-two-page picture book boasts three sections – each with shaped, die-cut pages – and offers a double gatefold at the end to encompass all the animals of the jungle. Behind a final flap, Mama JoJo says to Jazzy, “Found you, Baby Jazzy,” and Jazzy answers back, “I love you, Mama JoJo.” Bravo to Lucy Cousins!
