Orangutangled by Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen, illustrated by Aaron Zenz is a cumulative story.  Two orangutangs lunge for mangoes and get all mixed up in a gooey mess. A yak comes along and gets intertwangled; a boar comes exploring; then they hear a tiger prowling.  Of course the tiger becomes a part of the disaster.  I love the ending and they even get to eat some mangoes. The illustrations were rendered in brush-and-ink line work with color added in Photoshop.  It's a cute cartoon look to this silly, rhyming story.  I'll use it in Preschool Storytime and with Kindergarteners.
