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
