Poor Jungle Girl!
She falls into quicksand.
Jungle Boy finds her.
Jungle Girl starts to sink
while Jungle Boy tells her:
where and how quicksand forms
why people sink in quicksand
what happens to animals in quicksand
how people can watch out for quicksand
what people should do if they fall into quicksand
But Jungle Girl does not sink forever.
There is a happy
and surprising ending.
And a quicksand experiment.
For someone who has not fallen into quicksand,
author-artist Tomie dePaola knows a lot about it.
