UNCLE LEO'S ADVENTURES IN THE SIBERIAN JUNGLE

Yannets Levi

Middle Grade, 2009

 

“Have I ever told you about the time I met the giant who couldn't stop crying?”

“No, you never told us about that,” I said.

“Then I'll tell you now,” said Uncle Leo, and so he began.

 

Uncle Leo is no ordinary uncle, he is one-of-a-kind: an adventurer, a traveller and a magician all rolled into one. In this second instalment of his wonderful adventures, Uncle Leo tells Andy all about his time in the Siberian jungles from digging a tunnel to the other side of the world for the queen of Decria to meeting the giant who couldn't stop crying; from battling his own reflection in a magic mirror to travelling to Lafterovnik, where people cry when they're happy.

 

Funny, endearing and accompanied by lively and colourful illustrations, this second book in the Uncle Leo's Adventures series – that sold more than a million copies in Israel – brings to life the magic of storytelling.
