Set sail with Jack for an adventure on the high seas in this wondrous story from the stellar picture-book partnership of Julia Donaldson and David Roberts. Jack's Granny is sick with a bad case of the moozles! And the only cure is the fruit of the 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 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? Jack and the Flumflum Tree is a fantastic, action-packed rhyming adventure from Julia Donaldson, bestselling author of The Gruffalo , with richly detailed illustrations from award-winning illustrator David Roberts. Enjoy these other stories from Julia Donaldson and David Roberts: Tyrannosaurus Drip, The Troll, The Flying Bath and The Cook and the King .

I absolutely love this book and have tired of reading it to me kids for over 3years. The rhythm and rhyming of the words is fantastic and the illustrations are great. It's about a boy going to find a cure for his grandma. Really great book.

If i had to choose my favourite Julia Donaldson story i would pick this book. It's a joy to read out loud. It's a story about Jack looking for a cure for his Granny. She has given Jack and his friends some things that will help them on their journey. I love the illustrations too. The children love listening ti this story too.
