Click here to watch a video review of this book on my channel From Beginning to Bookend Faber and Vulliamy have found a winning combination in this beautiful illustrated chapter book series two darling characters four charming stories and lots of banana pancakes My daughter rates this 5 stars it is really lovely and as a read alone book it is a 5 star read This book is so nicely presented the cover with stripes is reminiscent of Mary Poppins and it has a retro feel The illustrations are wonderful a couple on each page in red black and white The characters are cute a tapir that gets into scrapes like Paddington bear and some lovely dogs My daughter really enjoyed reading this as it included several of her interests ballet music and animals Highly recommended for children who love humouress books with animal characters The first thing that struck me about the book was the beautiful almost 1950s design throughout Clara Vulliamy's artwork is just gorgeous and takes the words further in many places as much as Faber steps back at times and lets the art do the talking Bambang is just glorious to look at but so is the stuffed crocodile the young couple in love and the great golden monkey statue don't be fooled by the simplistic from cover Vulliamy is a highly skilled illustrator and I want to see of her work I found myself instantly reminded of Paddington Bear in that we have Bambang a tapir who is often at a loss at how to fit into city life Mango as patient and as caring as you could possibly be makes for a wonderful partner and although she dresses with great style she tends to relax through going through some of her karate moves Eually Vulliamy adds in some boys playing ballet too and I liked the fact that implicitly both author and writer play at challenging those gendered norms The style of writing itself is very good Faber respects the reader uses an engaging range of vocabulary and plenty of humour just because it's a short collection of stories all interlinked does not mean that it's for a beginner reader and yet the reading of it makes for a celebration of rich language and storytelling I look forward to of their adventures Bambang’s adventure continues in Tapir All at Sea and the second book is just as wonderful as the first I feel in love with Mango Bambang last year and have been eagerly awaiting their next set of adventuresTapir All at Sea contains four stories for you to enjoy either in one sitting like me or as separate treats Bambang remains impossibly endearing by getting in muddles as only he can There is dancing plus Dr Cynthia Prickle Posset returns and she hasn’t forgotten about Bambang being the perfect collector itemClara Vulliamy illustrations are magic they just work so perfectly with Polly Faber’s storyI hope there are many books to come This is a combo review for Mango Bambang book 1 and book 2 I spotted this book over at twitter and was instantly interested A book about a girl and a tapir? A tapir? Really I had to check this one out A lot of books just feature the standard animals cats dogs hamsters rabbits or dragons and unicorns if one would go to fantasy land but I haven't spotted one that has a tapirMango is a brave sweet wonderful smart girl who lives with her father She is the type who will try anything and everything and also won't give up instantly She just keeps trying even when it is hard or difficult One day while in the city she meets a tapir who was trying to become one with the Zebra Crossing though maybe we should just all call it Tapir Crossing considering how well the tapir blends in it and after a bunch of talking seriously this girl is super brave to stand up for what she wants to do even protecting someone she doesn't yet know that well they go to her home and become fast friendsI didn't expect Bambang to talk but for some reason I didn't mind It uickly became something normal and fun to see Bambang talk about everything The books are separated in various short stories however I am not sure if you could read them randomly I am sure you would miss certain events that happened previously Like how they met or that evil doctorwoman who likes to collect certain things You would also be a bit curious about the whole dad situation I loved that the books were separated with short stories We get to know the characters and we see them having a fun day or a fun time or something happens It is just something different from what normal books do chaptersone continuous story and I hope the other Tapir books please let there be will also keep this formatI have to say that I didn't always like Bambang at times I found him annoying or an idiot I mean you know that going outside is dangerous yet you just go out like that? But mostly I did like him he was an interesting character though I wondered about his life before Mango Where did he live in the jungle? Does he miss his family? Who is his family?I had uite a few laughs at his hat addiction a tapir loving hats and even have various of them for different situations I loved how sweet and kind he was towards Mango how he cheered her up how he was there for her how they had a great big time together I had uite a few laughs at all the people who apparently couldn't figure out what a tapir was and kept referencing him as beast or pig How can you get that wrong? Poor BambangMm what Ah yes the illustrations I just loved those They fitted the book perfectly and they were fun to look at I also loved the fact that the books were mostly blackwhite but had one colour theme per book For instance the first book stuff is coloured in purpleblackwhite while the second book is redblackwhite I can't wait to see what the next colour will beAh yes the last thing while reading this book it just gave of vibes of books likes Ottoline and Goth Girl Two series I both loved Would I recommend this series? Yes yes I would If you are looking for an adorable cute fluffy and fun read then read this oneReview first posted at I don't always put children book on my reading list but when I do it's really a good one I bought this book because Bambang is a very Indonesian name Well here Bambang is a great smart kindhearted tapir who's friend with a little girl called Mango The stories are simple but unusual and lovely I also really really love the duo tone illustration Violet and I both love these books they are the perfect balance of lovely illustration wonderful characters and entertaining stories Mango Allsorts is a kind young girl who adopts a lost tapir and brings him home to live with her They share her apartment with Mango’s father who is always busy in his study This allows the two companions the freedom to get into all sorts of adventuresThe four chapters involve many challenges and characters Mango and Bambang explore their talents and discover a tapir has some surprising attributes Although he’s not good at baking cakes or ballet Bambang is an amazing flamenco dancer a master at howling and a strong swimmer Unfortunately Bambang is not worldly wise When the sound of tapir music calls to him in the night and the smell of delicious food wafts under the door he follows his trunk like snout This leads him into the clutches of Dr Cynthia Prickle Posset an unpleasant collector of the unusual The ensuing drama and heroic antics lead to a triumphant finale Charming retro style illustrations may remind some older readers of the Milly Molly Mandy books The plentiful black white and red pictures are eye catching The artist develops the tapir from a shy animal into a talented and brave personality he’s adorable Mango is shown as a girl who protects and cares for her friend in the face of various dangers Remarkably she remains tidy and clean throughout all their escapadesAn attractive hardback publication complete with a dust jacket red page edges and a stitched binding This junior novel just begs to be picked up and shared with young readersReviewed by Jean Bennett Bookrapt I LOVED this book The characters adventures and language had me hooked from the first page As my 7 yo said 'Four chapters what? That's not enough' What can I say I am a huge fan of Tapirs and a book be it a childrens book that has them in it I will read
