This action figure is a young boy trapped in a man’s body who illustrates humorously how compulsive behavior leads to a set of chain reactions. Jang Jang’s character learns, like any young man, the hard way. He is engrossed in sports, fishing, dragons and pretty girls. And somehow, Jang Jang circumstantially learns about Mexico’s flora and fauna, it’s people, food, culture, over 40 Spanish words, the law and ultimately, redemption.
Recommended for Boys 3-10 and for men of any age.

Jang Jang Goes to Mexico
I rendered quite a few chuckles with this storybook! This was not only entertaining for my boy, but I found myself giggling at parts of the story he didn’t have a clue were funny. He loved learning the Spanish words and enjoyed the ‘find Waldo’ style pictures where he had to work hard to find Jang Jang. My son is 5 and found the entire book interesting enough to request it every night.
The book turned into a 4 day read for us which was great for the price. 11 chapters and 70 something pages that riveted his attention most of the time. When the wordy portions of the chapter came in, I myself became intrigued at what was going to happen next. Fun and informative read for both of us! Truly enjoyed the book and happy I purchased. Looking forward to the next one!
Adventures of Jang Jang
I have a 4 year old daughter and a 6 year old son. Both became engaged with the character and he was actually believable to them. They both enjoyed Jang Jang making goofy decisions that got him into trouble. I’m certain they were relating to him. They enjoyed the pictures and kept asking me, “Mom, are those real?” Good purchase on my part and I even learned quite a bit about Mexico I didn’t know such as how early the kids had to be in school. I found myself grinning in a number of chapters where my kids didn’t see the humor but I did, such as the phone call. LOL
