We have collected over 25 Julia Donaldson books and pretty much all of them are winners. This is definitely within the top 5 and one of the most regularly read after The Gruffalo and Snail and the Whale. It is a story about how Jack and his friends who go on a quest to find a cure for his grandmother’s fictional ailment. It has a good rhythm, and (sorry Axel, Julia’s most common illustrator) the pictures are excellent. I do wish this was published in the US, so more would know about it, but they would probably mess with the words too much and it would loose some of its fun as they did with Monkey Puzzle (UK)/Where’s My Mom? (US). Highly recommend! Check it out!

Jack and the Flumflum Tree Paperback – July 5, 2012 by Julia Donaldson (Author) Review
Love all of Julia Donaldson’s books that we have read but with that being said, I have my favorites. And this one is definitely in my top 5. I enjoy reading books that rhyme to my children and the better the rhyming the higher on my list the book goes. This is most certainly a good addition to any child’s library. -Read Reviews-
If you’re looking for great picture books with interesting stories in rhyme, you cannot go wrong with any of Julia Donaldson’s books. ..this one is no different. We own practically every Donaldson picture book from A Squash & a Squeeze, The Gruffalo, Singing Mermaid, Sharing a Shell, Tyrannosaurus Drip & so on. It doesn’t matter who the illustrator of the book is, as each brings his or her own magic to Julia’s great stories with beautiful & vibrant pictures. ..we often gift these books to our international English speaking friends, who in turn have become avid fans of Julia Donaldson & her wonderful characters.
