Synopsis

"And the sky, which had seconds before seemed so reliable, gave way"

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

As the plane crashes 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 impossibly small. Except, it seems, someone has been there before them…

The latest novel to come from Katherine Rundell will thrill all readers. With beautiful drawings from the talented Hannah Horn, this is a beautiful hardback you will want to treasure for years to come.

Take a sneak peak at the book below and don't forget to read the first chapter! We promise you will be hooked!
