Jack and the Flumflum Tree
Jack sets off to blow away granny's woes.
Granny gets purple dots on her body, and they are everywhere. Then, a doctor examines and says the only cure is the Flumflum fruit found on a faraway island-Blowyournose. Jack gets on the mission to help granny. He builds a boat and sets sail with his friends Rose and Stu. Granny gives a patchwork sack full of tools like balloons, skipping rope, gums, wooden spoons, and many more. Is there any useful tool in the bag? Oh, yes! Jack uses a plentiful on the way.
Trouble starts when the team reaches the island and gets the fruit. A monkey steals the fruit - did Jack get back his fruit? Did the kids return home? Did they save granny?
This is our second book by the author after The Gruffalo. We were curious about the flumflum tree in the title and picked the book. The story flows beautifully with rhymes and repeated phrases, making it a perfect pick for a read-aloud session. In addition, it shares intense messages of helping someone in need, working as a team, and learning to manage obstacles humorously. The illustrations are adorable.
Jack and the Flumflum Tree humorously convey profound values with rhyming phrases.
