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 the Peek-and-Find series, the Nature Trails series, and the 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.
Jungles are full of fascinating creatures that make the most interesting sounds. This fun book takes children deep within the jungle with colorful pop-ups intricately illustrated by world-renowned artist Maurice Pledger. As they enjoy the pop-ups, ittle ones thrill to an assortment of authentic animal sounds that perk up the ears and encourage mimicking. They hear monkeys screeching, elephants trumpheting, a leopard's rippling growl, the sound of jungle bugs, the okapi scurrying across the forest floor, and much more.

  • Learning Is Fun

    The '"Sounds Of The Wild" nature books authored by Maurice Pledger make learning fun for you and your child. The books consist of beautifully illustrated and color accurate pop-up pages showing the animals related to the book title (Jungle, Safari, Ocean, Birds, Night Time, Dinosaurs). There is a micro chip in a (secured by a screw) plastic box on the back cover. This is powered by a replacable button battery (yay! a book that can be used forever; you won't throw it out when the battery dies). Following each set of pop up pages is description and information of the amimals shown on the pop up page. Your child will delight in seeing and hearing the animals. Each set of pop up pages has it's own appropriate sound for the animals depicted. Purchasing "Sounds Of The Wild" books is money well spent; your child is entertained by the sights and sounds and this makes learning an enjoyable experience. This is a book that your child will cherish forever (and maybe pass it down to their children).
