Cornelia and the Jungle Machine

By Nora Brech
Illustrated by Nora Brech

A picture book that takes the young reader 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 tree house and a boy her own age... “Do you really live here all alone?” she asks. “No I live here with my inventions. Come and take a look inside.” 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; the drawings quite simply give the reader butterflies. Through an extreme wide-angle lens, the reader is sucked in to a powerfully detailed world.

  • A filmatic and wonderful universe
  • Themes of exploration and imagination, coupled with gothically understated text
