5 out of 5 stars
Three little girls are stranded on a desert island. They explore the jungle and discover magical animals and wildflowers that can talk. It even appears to snow in this strange jungle. The girls explore the wildness all around them and the wildness within themselves as well. The only thing that can kill the magic is reality.
I actually started crying after reading this book, because it was just that beautiful and sweet! The girls are so imaginative and charming! I love the sisterly camaraderie between them, and the way the older sister takes care of the younger ones.
I love the themes about the power of imagination! There are so many positive messages in this book. In a jungle where anything could happen, the plot keeps you guessing about what might pop up next.
The art work is absolutely beautiful! The graceful lines invite the reader into a reverie where every scene is whimsical and fun. I love the cute designs of the characters and their expressive faces. Even their body language says something about their personalities.
What a complete delight! I wish I could give it 10 stars!
