      "In the end, How Mumbo-Jumbo Conquered the World is a book of nostalgia. Baffled and unnerved by a world in which his judgements lack authority and his hopes are mocked, Wheen has produced a plangent lament for the days when bien-pensant thinkers were figures of some importance, cultural authorities to whom the rest of society deferred. Mumbo jumbo (phrase) Mumbo jumbo, or mumbo-jumbo, is an English phrase or expression that denotes a confusing or meaningless subject. It is often used as a humorous expression of criticism of middle-management and civil service non-speak, and of belief in practices based on superstition, rituals intending to cause confusion or languages that.

      Desser-Herchan, in her debut with illustrations by Salisbury, offers an eclectic mix of poems about childhood. Desser-Herchan organizes her diverse collection of poems into three chapters: "A Little Levity," which features whimsical poems on a variety of topics including ketchup preferences, the contents of a child's pocket and a little girl's imaginative language of sounds called "Mumbo Jumbo.".   Mumbo Jumbo is an odd book; there is a single narrative strain to it, a single plot, but the way Reed tells his story, it feels rather more disjointed, more confused, less cohesive as a single thing. This is clearly an intentional choice, and lends a fascinating kind of puzzle quality to the book; working out how different things, different.
