  • Interest Level: Kindergarten - Grade 2
  • Reading Level: Grade 2

Cornelia and her parents move in to a new house. Bored, she is sent to play “outside.” She discovers a hidden treehouse and a boy her own age.

“Do you really live here all alone?” she asks.

“No I live here with my inventions. Come and take a look . . .”

Inside Cornelia is introduced to a magical machine. A jungle machine!

Nora Brech’s gothic illustrations are packed with imaginative details and perspectives. Through an extreme wide-angle lens, she draws the reader in to a powerfully detailed, filmatic world.
