Chloe and Joey, tired from a day of cleaning the house and yard, can’t wait for a bite to eat and a good night’s sleep. But, too tired to make supper, Mom suggests trying the new diner in town. Here, the adventure begins.

The Jungle, aptly named for more than the ambiance, is indeed the new hot spot. Everyone’s there. Or so it seems. Things
are falling, flying, spilling and smashing. And amidst the clamour, clatter and clutter, the poor waiter attempts to take orders and serve tables. As Chloe, Joey and their parents sit quietly in their booth deciding what to order, they get a front-row seat to the
chaos that is The Jungle.

Vibrant and action filled illustrations make this a quirky rhyme-filled story an adventure for children and parents alike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My FAVOURITE!! My son was given this book as a gift in 2011, he was just a baby. He will be three tomorrow and it is by far both of our favourite books to read at bed time! It never fails to spark a new question about what those "silly kids" are doing! I look forward to reading more books by her!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hilarious! A great book for parents to read to their little Mozarts! It is a fun, lively, and entertaining story with great illustrations. I love the surprise ending. Could be useful to initiate a discussion with children about eating-out etiquette.
