A familiar childhood song gets an African twist in Isadora's latest picture book. She takes readers on safari to the plains of Africa to meet elephants, cheetahs, and dassies ("E-I-E-I-O"). Old Mikamba's farm is a game park, so while there is some interaction between the two small children in the book and the animals, most of them are presented against a backdrop wilder and freer than any space Old MacDonald could offer his domestic stock. Rhinos "BELLOW-BELLOW" through the grass; a springbok "AH-AH-AHs" across a sun-baked terrain; and an elephant "BARAAA-BARAAAs" with a baby following behind. While the animal sounds are fun and lend themselves perfectly to a storytime rendition, the artwork is a particular treat. Isadora incorporates oil, ink, pencil, and printed paper to create collages that give a distinct sense of place, set against plentiful white space that allows the animals to pop on each double-page spread. An extensive concluding note provides interesting facts about all of the animals included, as well as a mention of the role game farms and parks play in protecting Africa's endangered species.
