Review for Mango & Bambang: Tiny Tapir Trouble
The third book in this series, and it keeps getting better and better with each page.
So I wasn’t really planning on reading this one yet, I wanted to save it, but yesterday I couldn’t sleep, and reading a horror book wasn’t helping at all. I needed something cute, something fluffy, something that would make me laugh. And thus I decided to read this one!
The book is once again filled with several new stories about Mango and Bambang. They go to the beach, they meet a new (and annoying) friend, Bambang gets sick, and more! I really loved all of them, though I have to say I was a bit disappointed that the tiny tapir only got one story. Well, disappointed more because I thought he would be the main point in this book. But after the story happened, I was kind of glad that it was just one story. Because Guntur was just an annoying brat, and I was sad that he couldn’t be nicer, and kept making sure Bambang looked bad. 🙁
But the other stories were wonderful. My favourite is definitely the first one with the sea. I loved what happened there, and I was so happy for Bambang. He had a bad start, but he showed how awesome he was.
I do have to say I had quite a laugh at how Guntur was delivered. 😛 It is good that he is tiny, otherwise he would have needed a bigger box.
The stories do connect, so be sure to read them in order that they are in the book, otherwise you might just miss stuff, and that would be a shame.
Mango is still a wonderful girl, and I really like her so much. She is sweet, she does her best, she is a great friend. I do wish we could see some stories of her in school (maybe Bambang can visit her there).
Bambang is the best tapir ever, well, not that I got a lot of comparison material, but I am sure Bambang will be the best even with other tapir stories should they ever get there. 😛 I still have to get used to the fact he was talking, I had forgotten he did that.
He still has a lovely hat addiction, and I just looked forward to see his new hats.
There are also illustrations and I still love them to bits!
All in all, I can’t wait for a new book about this duo, with new stories, new adventures! I also hope we get to see the dad one day. It reminds me a bit of old cartoons were you wouldn’t see the parents (or only halfway).
