A charming story with modern illustrations about coming to terms with and finding one’s place in a blended family situation.
Ever since Janis’ parents split, Janis has been living in a jungle. His mum’s new partner looks like a crocodile, his dad’s new girlfriend resembles a tiger, and her sons a wild troop of apes.

After all, a jungle is a pretty adventurous place and there’s lots of fun to be had with cheeky apes …
