Known for her previous Rooftoppers and last year’sWolf Wilder, this title tells the story of four children who are the sole survivors of a plane crash in the Amazon jungle. They band together and armed with a map they try head to head home.  Then they come across an explorer who is less than happy about their appearance. There are wonderful descriptions of the jungle, what the kids do and what they have to eat to survive. A contemporary story but a great, ‘old-fashioned’ adventure story too; short-listed for the Costa Children’s Book Award 2017.
