The Explorer by Katherine Rundell


About the book:

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?
