The Lovereading4Kids comment
Newly-appointed Children’s Laureate Julia Donaldson’s boisterous shipboard adventure is deliciously suffused with magic and nonsense. Granny’s purple spots are diagnosed as a bad case of the moozles so Jack sets off to find the only cure - the fruit of the flumflum tree from the faraway Isle of Blowyernose. Luckily, Granny packs an amazing patchwork bag for Jack and his crew… Surprising adventures need surprising solutions. Julia Donaldson doesn’t disappoint!
Jack and the Flumflum Tree by Julia Donaldson
Jack's Granny is sick with a bad case of the moozles! And the only cure is the fruit of the fantastic flumflum tree which grows on the faraway Isle of Blowyernose. It's a perilous journey, but Jack bravely sets sail, with a motley crew of only three - and a large patchwork sack that Granny has filled with an odd assortment of items from chewing-gum to tent pegs. But what use will they be against hungry sharks, a leaky boat and a thieving monkey ...? Follow Jack across the ocean in this irresistible story from the creators of Tyrannosaurus Drip and The Troll .
'Friendship, home and the imagination are perhaps the biggest themes that dominate books for young children, and it would be hard to find a more effortless synthesis of the three than the latest from the new children’s laureate..' The Telegraph
