Interest Age 5-8 Former Children’s Laureate Julia Donaldson’s story is a touching adventure told in easy to read chapters. Elmo and his sister want to move to the run down house with the overgrown garden. Instead, their parents choose to buy the house next door. Luckily, Elmo and his sister can still play in the jungle as the house remains empty. But, when new owner arrives, it looks as if their fun will be over... It's beautifully packaged and illustrated by the wonderful Hannah Shaw. ~ Julia Eccleshare

Mr Birdsnest and the House Next Door by Julia Donaldson
A tiger in the back garden! A bird-eating spider in the cupboard! Elmo and his sister love playing in the jungle house next door, that is, until mean old Mr Birdsnest moves in. But when it appears that Mr Birdsnest has kidnapped the children's grandma they must sneak back in to rescue her! A delightful and cleverly written story by the Children's Laureate, Julia Donaldson.
Suitable for 5-8s with reading age of 6+.
