Cornelia and the Jungle Machine by Nora Brech.

corneliaCornelia and the Jungle Machine by Nora Brech. Pub. Gecko Press, 2019.

Not quite a wordless picture book, with the written text giving you just enough to stimulate your imagination.

Cornelia moves with her parents to a new or rather old house. It looks like the sort of house Norman Bates lived in – stuffed animals on the walls and a grim gothic exterior.

Cornelia doesn’t like it, there’s no one to play with. Her parents send her off into the forest to have some time out and the fantasy begins and Oh what fantasy.

Cornelia finds a ladder leading to the tree tops and meets Fredrik who has an eye patch and an inventive personality. They have a great time.

The illustrations are impressive. Kids will pour over them for hours. Some of the best I have seen in a picture book.

Needless to say Cornelia comes back to her new home with a different point of view.

For primary and intermediate readers but everybody will love this story. Check it out.
