Product description

From his seat in a tiny aeroplane, Fred watches the mysterious Amazon jungle pass by far below. He’s always dreamed of being an explorer – finding unseen places, and making history with his great discoveries. If only he could land and have a look around! Then the plane crashes into the canopy. Suddenly, Fred’s dream is becoming way too real. He and the three other children may be alive, but the jungle is a vast, untamed place. With no hope of rescue, their chance of survival is incredibly small. Except, it seems, someone has been there before them…

  • A thrilling new adventure from the brilliantly gifted author of Rooftoppers
  • Inspired by Eva Ibbotson’s classic tale Journey to the River Sea
  • Perfect for anyone who loves Eva Ibbotson, Philip Pullman or Willard Price
  • High adventure in the grand tradition, full of danger, courage and wonder

“Katherine Rundell just gets better and better. I loved The Explorer. On one level it’s a very exciting adventure … but it’s also saying profound things about human nature and love and loss.” Jacqueline Wilson
