The Explorer

Katherine Rundell, Hannah Horn


Average rating

5 out 5

After crashing hundreds of miles from civilisation in the Amazon rainforest, Fred, Con, Lila and Max are utterly alone and in grave danger. They have no food, no water and no chance of being rescued. But they are alive and they have hope. As they negotiate the wild jungle they begin to find signs that something - someone - has been there before them. Could there possibly be a way out after all?

As good as Eva Ibbotson’s Journey to the River Sea - it felt even more of a wild river ride: full of adventure, challenges, bravery, friendship & teamwork. Each of the children were a unique & interesting mini-character study, as was the sole rogue adult. Loved it.
