The Jumbalees set off for a night's camping in the forest but Fred has to stay behind and finish his homework. On their walk through the forest Elvis entertains them with poems. They set up camp, but just as it was getting dark and they were about to go to bed, a distant wailing sound in the night scares them. What kind of creature could it be? They set off cautiously in the dark to find out where the strange noise is coming from. This series of illustrated stories for kids are about the Jumbalees, a group of colourful young creatures that live and play together on an exotic island close to the ocean. They behave like human children, working together even when they disagree as they make their way through exciting and sometimes scary adventures. Their social interactions help prepare them for dealing with others and the world around them and their loyalty and humour allow them to overcome the obstacles they face. The colourful cartoon illustrations in these storybooks make reading more fun for kids.
