Algy's Amazing Adventures in the Jungle

By Kaye Umansky
Illustrated by Richard Watson

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

A brand-new, laugh-out-loud Early Reader about a boy who discovers another world at the bottom of his garden - from bestselling author Kaye Umansky.

Early Readers are stepping stones from picture books to reading books. A blue Early Reader is perfect for sharing and reading together. A red Early Reader is the next step on your reading journey.

There are lots of things Algy doesn't like - top of the list is his own name. Algernon is just weird. Pugh sounds a bit like - well, never mind.

Other things on his list include: Girls, the Dark, and Having Adventures. So imagine Algy's surprise when he finds a jungle at the bottom of the garden of his new house! And imagine his irritation when his annoying next door neighbour, Cherry - yes, a GIRL - wants to come and explore it with him. She'll only giggle and whisper if he doesn't go with her. But will they ever make it home again?
