The Explorer , ,

Like a man-made magic wish, the aeroplane rose into the sky. It did not stay there for long.

From his seat in the aeroplane, Fred watches the mysteries of the Amazon jungle pass by below him. He has always dreamed of becoming an explorer, of reading his name among the lists of great adventurers. If only he could land and look about him.

As the plane smashes into the canopy, Fred is suddenly left without a choice. He and the three other children may be alive, but the jungle is a vast, untamed place. With no hope of rescue, the chance of getting home feels terrifyingly small.

A thrilling adventure story by Katherine Rundell, author of Rooftoppers, The Girl Savage and The Wolf Wilder.
