Cornelia and the Jungle Machine
Cornelia and the Jungle Machine is a big book, full of amazing, dark illustrations. Being about half illustrations to half text, the illustrations do an excellent job of having the story continue when there is no text. The story begins with a girl named Cornelia who has just moved to a big, cluttered, and woodsy-looking home with her parents against her will. Seemingly being an only child, she is understandably bored at her new home by herself. Starting to become more of a nuisance than a help, her parents send her out to explore. Leaving the ancient grounds, she explores the array of trees around her, with ladders that lead her to the top of one special tree. At last, she has met a friend who appears to be in the same situation as herself. This friend is an inventor, and soon shows her his jungle machine that is able to provide them with endless hours of entertainment together. After a day like none other, Cornelia thinks that she might be able to handle this move after all. This book was enjoyed by my five and three-year-old, but also by this much older reader. We can’t wait to read about what new adventure Cornelia will find herself in next!
