Synopsis

Lisa is not one who likes to be outdone. When her classmates return from summer break with exciting stories about their vacations, Lisa decides to regale them with her own vacation story—a trip to the jungle to visit her Uncle Paul who raises panthers and leopards! Lisa enthralls her audience with tales from her amazing jungle adventure, until one of her classmates blows her cover when he asks her how he saw her at the community pool every day over the summer if she was in the jungle.

With a snappy text and irresistible illustrations, Lisa in the Jungle is sure to charm anyone who ever wished they had a more exciting summer vacation.

Lisa's is the better story—Gutman pays more attention to the problems of being small in a world of large people, and Lisa is conjured with real charm—but Gaspard's is more impressive visually.
