Product description

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 Explorer has been shortlisted for the Costa Children’s Book Award 2017.

    When their plane crashes, four children are stranded in the amazon jungle. Now they have to survive alone. But was someone their before them? I liked this book. I would recomended it to people who like mystery and adventure.
