    Book reviewJack and the Flumflum Tree By the author Julia Donaldson Jack decides to go on a voyage to find the fruit that grows on flumflum tree in order to help his granny get rid of her spots. He leaves on his journey with his multicultural crew; they come across many dangers but are saved by the contents of the patchwork sack Jacks granny gave them. This book is told in rhyme. The story keeps you interested and gives lots of room for imagination. There are some many items mention in the short story and they all come of use. Friendship is a big theme in the book as Jack is constantly helping his friends out throughout his voyage with the patchwork sack his granny gave to him. There are very colourful illustrations too throughout the book, they are very colourful with coinciding facial expressions to express the events

    Jacks grandmother gets sick and sends Jack and his friends on an adventure to bring her a healing fruit. Armed with a patchwork sack of necessary tools for the journey, Jack and his friends set off for the island of, Blowyernose. This story is told in verse, and has a predictable rhyming pattern that allows young readers to participate in the reading. Beautiful illustrations accompany this book and young readers will enjoy pouring over the details, especially the pages with the sharks. My first grade students loved this story, and Ms. Donaldson is quickly becoming one of their favorite authors.

    Really fun book with beautiful illustrations from David Roberts. The book is at its best when read aloud, as you really appreciate the rhyme at the end of each sentence, which in turn helps the story to flow from page to page. It’s a funny book, and children will definitely laugh! It could be used throughout EYFS and KS1, and would make a lovely topic book. You could recreate both the art style and the writing style as it’s a nice introduction to both. Not that long a story so could be enjoyed as an afternoon read, but also could be explored further in a topic session.

    Jack's Granny has the moozles so he sets off to find the cure on the Isle of Blowyernose! Luckily Granny has given him a patchwork sack full of useful items to help him on his adventures. Lovely rhyming story with lots to discuss in the pictures (love the endpapers and the Troll hiding in the wrong book...) Would make a good topic in early years - could inspire lots of ideas.

    Great book with rhyming couplets throughout. Children can join in with “Don’t get your knickers in a twist,” said Jack. “Let’s have a look in the patchwork sack.” Also teaches children to not give up when faced with a problem... find a solution.

    Great for teaching children about rhyming couplets. Children can join in with the repetition of: ‘’Don’t get your knickers in a twist’’ said Jack. ‘’Let’s have a look in the patchwork sack.’’

    This very animated adventure of young Jack unfolds when he sets sail on a voyage to the Isle of Blowyernose to cure his Granny’s ‘Moozles.’ Once his boat is built and he has found his crew, red-cheeked Rose and stubble-checked Stu, the voyage begins and off they sail. They discover that the ocean is a very dangerous place however, prior to departure Granny gave Jack a patchwork sack. Perhaps the contents of the sack will help them to overcome the problems they encounter, sharks attacks, a leak in their boat, and toppling over board are just a taste of what is to come. Eventually, after a great deal of team work they reach the Isle of Blowyernose. It is a really fun and enjoyable book to read to Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage One pupils. It’s very engaging as it’s told in rhyme and contains one distinctive rhyming couplet, “Don’t get your knickers in a twist said Jack, let’s have a look in the patchwork sack.” When I was reading this book to a class of pupils I paused before this phrase was uttered. This was to enable them to remain focused and engaged not only on the story but to be able to participate in these two utterances. The bold and colourful illustrations used in the book throughout create further fun, excitement and laughter when the book is read aloud to a class of children. The storytelling then becomes more exciting and animated for both the child and the reader. Not only does this book hold the attention of the child but of the adult involved too. It’s a perfect bedtime read. Due to the nature of the rhyme used throughout the book I found that after a few reads to some children they were then able to read this book during independent reading time or at the reading corner. This was achieved through a combination of reading and reading through memory. I also feel that as previously discussed this book could be read aloud to a class of children. If this book was read to key stage one pupils they could be encouraged to incorporate the story into a creative writing task. It could be used as a creative tool for children embarking on their own adventure story. The concept of working as a team which I discussed briefly in the opening paragraph could be used as a discussion task during carpet time. The exploration of relationships and friendships could be an additional talking point and the book may further encourage team work within the classroom. It could inspire children to build positive and trusting relationships with their peers. This can be reflected in the story when Stu is rescued from the ocean reiterating the aspect of team work throughout the book. So, if you’re searching for an energetic and enjoyable story book to add to the classroom collection I’d strongly recommend Jack and the FlumFlum Tree.

    Today We DidJack’s Granny has developed the Moozles, and there is only one known cure, the fruit of the Flumflum tree. The Flumflum tree grows on the distant island of Blowyernose, but Jack is determined to reach it and return with the fruit to cure his Granny. He builds a boat, secures a crew, and gets ready to sail. Granny gives him a patchwork sack full of interesting objects that she thinks the adventurers may need, and they set off, but what awaits them along their journey?Jack and the Flumflum Tree is another brilliant and engaging story book from Julia Donaldson, author of The Gruffalo. The lyrical text, which just begs to be read aloud, sucks even the most reluctant reader into Jack’s story. There is action, misadventure, bravery and inventiveness along their journey, with plenty of laughs. Granny’s sack is a wonder, and what Jack does with each item is clever and entertaining. The repetition of Jack’s reaction to each new situation is memorable, and has spurred my children into using the phrase “Don’t get your knickers in a twist!” when someone is flustered, or just inserted into everyday conversations with no context!All the pages are beautifully illustrated, with expressive characters, and interesting scenery. I particularly like Stu’s and Rose’s facial expressions each time another complication arises. There are many little creatures hiding among the foliage on the island of Blowyernose, which my kids like to spot.Suitable for primary school students, Jack and the Flumflum Tree, is also great for parents, a book that will be hard to get sick of. All my children love this book, and it is often called upon for bedtime reading.

    The title suggests this may be a retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk but it's not really -- it's an original tale based on mythic structure with elements of Little Red Riding Hood (the sick grandma) and pirate adventures (the big seas, the small boat). Like any good fairytale, this story makes use of the rule of threes.This is also a carnivalesque story, in which the opponents are friendly, easily distracted, and very happy to join the children in their hi-jinks.The book annoys me for the same reason many children's stories annoy me: The white boy with two sidekicks, one black boy and one girl dressed in pink. We'll know we've got something akin to *genuine* diversity when we find a big-name author paired up with an illustrator happy to depict a black boy as the star of the story (with a white boy sidekick), or even better, a trio of two black girls and one white boy... and every other possible combo except for the one we see everywhere, including here.The phrase 'Don't get your knickers in a twist' has always annoyed me. Here you'll find it repeated as a refrain.

    Wow! This is a great book - it has it all!Jack's granny is ill with the moosles and the only cure is to eat the fruit from the flumflum tree. Jack and his multicultural crew set sail to the Isle of Blowyernose to bring back a cure for granny. The engaging story is told in rhyme, with just the right amount of naughtiness and repetition with the phrase "Don't get your knickers in a twist said Jack, let's have a look in the patchwork sack". The illustrations are fun too, very colourful with lots of intriguing little details and facial expressions. This will be a heap of fun at a family storytime and a read at home favourite.

    My classes author this half term was Julia Donaldson. All her books were thoroughly enjoyed. I particularly loved this story. Rhyme, repetition, a fantastic story and beautifully illustrated and of course the "don't get your knickers in a twist" line for the children. I had never heard of this story before and now wonder why it is not as famous as The Gruffalo? My class and I highly recommend it.

    I love David Roberts' illustrations! I recognised his style from the Fairy Detective Agency books so I just had to pick it up. It's a lovely little story about a journey to a Flumflum tree and appropriate for my age (27) I cracked up every time Jack said "Don't get your knickers in a twist.". Oh, also, this one has rhymes if you like that! I think it worked wonderfully.

    When his Grandma is poorly, Jack and his friends sale off the the Isle of Blowyernose in order to track down the mythical Flum Flum fruit that will make her better. It's a lovely vibrant book with beautiful illustrations, and the nonsense words used will both entertain KS1, and help them improve their phonetical knowledge for the Year 1 phonics screening.

    I love picture books which don't rhyme; they offer a tone and approach all their own. But when you start out on one which does, wow, it's liberating and an adventure in speaking. The Flum Flum tree is Donaldson at her best. It's a flight of fancy which flows without a hitch. Beautiful.

    I love David Roberts' work. I think I prefer his black and white work as he does 'gothic' so well, but still excellent. Particularly loved some of the details like the sharks swimming under the wave pattern. Expert. Not my favourite Julia Donaldson book.

    I think I have read this book to my 3yo on average once a day since he got it. It has lovely rhyme and the pictures are beautifully drawn. It's not too taxing on a 3 year old's attention span. Much better than a lot of kids books out there - holds the parents attention as well as the childs.

    My son thoroughly enjoyed reading this. The humour injected into this book is memorable with my son laughing at 'blowyernose' long after the book was finished.

    Well, it's no Tolstoy. Maybe I'm not the target audience. It might take me a while to get used to being a parent.
