Cornelia and the Jungle Machine

Nora Brech

Gecko Press

This picture book takes young readers into the jungle and immerses them in a filmic universe of mechanical wonders.

Cornelia and her parents move in to a new house. Bored, she is sent to play outside. She discovers a hidden treehouse and a boy her own age... Inside Cornelia is introduced to a magical machine. A jungle machine!

Nora Brech’s gothic illustrations are packed with imaginative details and perspectives. Her pictures play with references to classical children’s literature, and the book’s large format is fully utilized when Cornelia climbs up the tall trees. Through an extreme wide-angle lens, the reader is sucked in to a powerfully detailed world.
