Jungle Tales - Book Review


Although this book was originally written and published in 1918 by Horacio Quiroga (1878-1937), this edition of the book was translated to English by Jeff Zorrilla and beautifully illustrated by Bert van Wijk in 2012.

Horacio Quiroga spend most of his life in Argentina, but spend some of his youth in Europe. He is one of the most fascinating characters in Latin American literature. The experiences he had while working his many careers as a teacher, journalist, carpenter, cotton farmer, film critic and justice of the peace allow him to see the world through different eyes.

Jungle Tales is a collection of eight short stories that capture the magic and majesty of the jungle. Exciting tales show nature in its splendor. You will enjoy reading about the lazy bee that learns a lesson after spending a rainy night in a cave with a snake, a tortoise that carries a man on his back many miles to safety, some snakes who threw a party for the pink flamingoes and stingrays who join forces to fight off man-eating jaguars.

The eight stories: The Giant Tortoise, The Flamingoes’ Stockings, The Bald Parrot, The Alligator War, The Blind Doe, The Story of Two Coati Cubs and Two Man Cubs, The Yabebiri Ford, and The Lazy Bee.

There is also an illustrated glossary just in case you don’t know what a Capybara , a Coati, a Tatú Carreta, a Surubi or a Yarará.

Great Book – Enjoy!

Special Note: I received a hardcover copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Read the book, then enjoy playing with these jungle animals.
