Jack and the Flumflum Tree
By (author) Julia Donaldson; Illustrated by David Roberts
Jack’s Granny is sick with a bad case of the moozles! 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? This irresistible story from the author of THE GRUFFALO and the brilliant picture-book pairing behind TYRANNOSAURUS DRIP, THE TROLL and THE FLYING BATH is now available as a chunky board book, perfect for younger readers.

She and her husband Malcolm divide their time between Edinburgh and West Sussex. David Roberts is an award-winning illustrator with an international following.
