The Jungle of Utt: Mystery of the Lake

The Jungle of Utt: Mystery of the Lake




The Jungle of Utt is a beautifully illustrated series of books all written in rhyme for the young and young at heart.

The stories tell of a young adventurer named Barnaby who, while sailing one day on the Sassaway Sea, got lost in a storm and is shipwrecked on the mystical Island of Skree. On the island Barnaby meets many wonderful animal friends who are different and new, and some who are peculiar too. We learn of the things they build and the exciting adventures they share together.

In Mystery of the Lake, the island's children go swimming in the lake and encounter a strange-looking creature that fills them with dread. Barnaby solves the mystery, proving the "monster" is just a figment of their imaginations.

My three-year-old daughter loves this series! Although the books skew a little older, she loves the rhyme and the vivid illustrations.
