As an elementary school teacher, I can see how this book would easily appeal to the young adventurer!

Upon getting a copy of this, I told my son to read a little, he wasn’t too fond of the idea as its summer. Without giving the book away, it intrigued my 9 turning 10 year old, my two younger sons, and my soon to be 12 year old daughter.
The book reads like an actual adventure where you really feel you are deep in the Amazon. I highly would recommend this book to a child regardless of their interest. A must read for pure entertainment.
