The story tells of Jack and his friends setting off to find a cure for his Granny's Moozels. They have to sail away to find the fruit of the Flumflum tree and bring it back to achieve this. Granny gives Jack some special supplies in a sack to take on the voyage and the story tells just how they become useful to them.
The story has Donaldson's usual lyrical style. I very much enjoyed the opening to the story which reminded me a little of the nursery rhyme 'Miss Polly had a Dolly' in style. As with so many of her books, the style lends itself to reading aloud and your children learning it by heart. There are a few cheeky moments in this story which my son loved, especially the mention of knickers, and the sing song style had them chanting along with it in no time at all.
Highly recommended from Donaldson, as usual
