About this item

High above the jungle floor, fearless Zoe, explorer extraordinaire, catches a glimpse of the rare wild Addiebeast. She springs over the treeline in hot pursuit - And then Zoe's mother calls, 'WE'RE LEAVING IN FIVE MINUTES!' Yet Zoe still has so much to do on the playground, which transforms into a jungle in her imagination! So against the ticking clock of Mama's countdown, she chases the Addiebeast across precarious logs (balance beams) , escapes from wild monkeys in their natural habitat (the jungle gym) , and climbs to the very top of the rainforest (a tree house) . But can she catch the elusive creature in time?
