The Jungle Survival Guide

  • A book falls out of a yellow-tracksuit-wearing hiker’s bag. A strange creature, a yeti-like blob, quickly picks it up. Fantastic! A jungle survival guide!

    The creature immediately begins reading and interpreting this manual of tips and tricks for lost hikers. Using its skills and intelligence, the creature creates a series of poetic inventions, that far surpass the model.


    The poor snake that bit the strange creature is the first to suffer; what a wonderful plaster its skin makes! Then, the sunlight hurts the blob’s eyes; what could it use to make sunglasses? Ice and an octopus, of course! With a great deal of imagination and
    poetry, the strange creature takes possession of its environment and transforms it.

    These funny little scenes will delight young and old alike, and inspire children to become, like the strange creature, little versatile geniuses!
