When Mama's schedule and Zoe's playtime collide, what's an explorer to do? The latest companion to Zoe Gets Ready and Zoe's Room (No Sisters Allowed)!

High above the jungle floor, fearless Zoe, explorer extraordinaire, catches a glimpse of the rare wild Addiebeast. She springs over the treeline in hot pursuit-

And then Zoe's mother calls, "WE'RE LEAVING IN FIVE MINUTES!"

Yet Zoe still has so much to do on the playground, which transforms into a jungle in her imagination! So against the ticking clock of Mama's countdown, she chases the Addiebeast across precarious logs (balance beams), escapes from wild monkeys in their natural habitat (the jungle gym), and climbs to the very top of the rainforest (a tree house). But can she catch the elusive creature in time?

A quest book, a sister story, and a race against the clock, Zoe's Jungle is a heartwarming tale of adventure and imagination.

Raves & reviews:

Praise for Zoe Gets Ready:

"The cartoon simplicity matches the light text and gentle humor, and sparkles on the cover accent the many outfits with great pizzazz. Add this one to the growing list of fun stories for young ladies with style." -School Library Journal

"With layers of meaning, a spunky, fun-loving heroine, and clever use of the butterfly motif throughout, this one is a keeper." -Booklist

Praise for Zoe's Room (No Sisters Allowed):

"Zoe's abundant curiosity shines from the top of her crown to the bottom of her stretched tippy-toes." -Kirkus

"Soft-hued pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations . . . charmingly depict the age old dilemma of learning to compromise." -School Library Journal

"Children will enjoy watching Zoe and Addie play their game while also searching for the Addiebeast's polka-dotted "hide," thus allowing them to take part in the pursuit." -School Library Journal
