The Jungle Green Jalopy is a picture book text delightfully illustrated by John Bennett. Jill Eggleton delivers another fun quirky story in which an eccentric woman has a fondness for an old out of date car. Will she bow to social pressure and buy something more modern?
Ziggy bought a new car. It was a jungle green jalopy. Carlo said it was a ratty, rusty, rowdy car but Ziggy thought it was a hippy, hoppy, happy car.
Ziggy went chugging around town, but her jungle green jalopy went wibble, wibble, wobble all by itself, and sometimes it made other noises!
Softcover, 240 mm x 225 mm full colour throughout, includes audio CD of the author reading the story
