Julia Eccleshare's comment:
Children’s Laureate Julia Donaldson leads readers on a delightful adventure as Jack and his two person crew of ‘red-cheeked Rose and Stubble-cheeked Stu’ set off to the Isle of Blowyernose in search of the fruit of the flumflum tree. Without it, granny will never be cured of her big purple spots… Jack and his crew fix a leak and see off some sharks before they find the fruit and sail home with their important prize!

SynopsisJack 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
