The Giant Jumperee by Julia Donaldson illustrated by Helen Oxenbury*

I love Ms. Oxenbury's illustrations so when I saw this book displayed at our library, I quickly checked it out.
Rabbit hears a voice from inside his burrow announcing that it is a "jumperee and as scary as can be!".  Rabbit is scared and cries out.  Cat appears on the scene and offers to help, but he too is scared away.  The story continues with each successive animal bigger and mightier, but the jumperee frightens each one away.  Then Mama frog comes along and bravely enters the burrow.
A fun, surprise ending.
Wonderful word choice (strong verbs).
*Highly recommend for toddlers and preschoolers.
-Borrowed from the library.
