I'm the Scariest Thing
in the Jungle!

By David G. Derrick, Jr.

$15.95, hardcover, 36 Pages,
ISBN: 978-1-59702-087-9, 9.5 x 10

"A delightful and sweet story, successfully mixing kids' love of animals with their desire to be independent."
-Dan Krall, Author of The Great Lollipop Caper, Character designer-Samurai Jack, Coraline, and PowerPuff Girls

This lively adventure features an animal "Odd Couple": a terrifying young tiger and a fearsome little crocodile engage in a playful war of words. They may be small, but they surely believe they are scary!

In lush spreads painted in traditional watercolor, this budding rivalry escalates. The two youngsters compare their tremendous stealth, strength, stamina, and even speed. The argument is subtly educating, but overtly hilarious; especially when readers learn what animal is truly the scariest thing in the jungle.

Crocodile "The amazing part for me about Derrick's art is the sense of movement…I've come to appreciate the gift some artists have for capturing static art and giving it life. It's not just an unmoving drawing or painting, but somehow it comes alive. You can see that gift in Derrick's work..."

Press Release


water buffalo "The illustrations in Animals Don't, So I Won't! by David G. Derrick, Jr. are so clever and humorous that you can't help but laugh out loud."
- Kids' Brain

"Story artist Dave Derrick is a guy who inspires me with his talent, energy and determination to constantly seek out and accomplish new things…I have an especially soft spot for the sort of animal drawing he's adept at. He draws constantly from life, but to my eye his animals always have an extra personality and charm that's probably equal parts what's there--and what's inside the artist himself."
