Adventures in Booga Booga Land - Scott Nichol (Video)

Released September 2010

Reviewed by Tracy Farnsworth

The Adventures in Booga Booga Land DVD is based on the popular children's book of the same name by Robert Milner. It's kind of bittersweet that this book made it to DVD because the author vanished while hiking around Cream Lake on Vancouver Island in 2003, before the book was even published,. He had never been seen or heard from again. However, I'm certain he'd be thrilled with both the book and the video version.

Adventures in Booga Booga Land retells the parables of Jesus in a kid-friendly manner. The main characters, Marty the Monkey and Gerard the Giraffe, are lively and enjoyable. True of many cartoon characters, they have their mishaps, including the classic crushed by falling rock scenarios. Children will enjoy watching Marty and Gerard on their many adventures and often laugh at their antics. Catchy Caribbean music starts off the video and should get  younger children out of their seat and dancing to the beat.
