The Jungle Crew: Into the City!
Year of publication
Viidakon väki ja suuri muutto
Original language of publication
"The book conveys diversity in a graceful way: the jungle animals, the white-tailed deer, seals and chickens all live in harmony in the city.
At its best the book's pages are detailed in the style of Richard Scarry...
The mixed media technique is flavoured with speech bubbles. Designed bold text and large character size support a beginning reader."
Emmi Nuorgam/ Lukuretriitti (@lukuretriitti)
"The illustrations are fun and insightful and the story has great rhythm. The pages have just the right amount of text for a bedtime story."
Songül Bozacı, Artful Living
"It conveys the adaptation to new living places and the exclusion of newcomers in unfamiliar environments through sweet language and animal characters. We can see how Lumme' architectural education reflects in the book. She conveys with a meaningful fiction that living spaces can be created without destroying nature.
What I like most about the story from beginning to end is that it reflects peaceful coexistence and solidarity excellently. It is meaningful that they find solutions together to the issues that occur in the jungle where all kinds of creatures live together and that they fight together until the last moment."
