Jabari Tries

Author: Gaia Cornwall
Publisher: Walker

The endearing father-child dynamic of Jabari Jumps is re-created in this sequel in which Jabari is determined to invent a machine all by himself that will fly right across his back garden. He consults books, finds out about inventors and inventions and makes careful plans but he just can’t quite make it work. Then his dad suggests that partnering with his little sister Nika might help and together they produce a feat of engineering. Advice from dad about dealing with feelings of frustration plays an important part too.
