'Funny, wise and true' - Philip Pullman. With a foreword by Michael Morpurgo, this award-winning book has many eulogies and has been described as a perfect children's book. Set 100 years ago it follows the life and journey of Maia, an orphan girl, who is sent form a well-meaning but prim London boarding school to join distant relatives in the Amazon jungle. There she imagines she will find the loving family she longs for and has never had, but one by one her dreams are shattered. Despite the disappointment of finding her new family completely horrific, Maia is blessed with wonderful friends who help her through the twists and turns of this incredible journey. Maia finds two spiteful cousins who see the jungle as the enemy and refuse to go outdoors, but the wonders of the rainforest more than make up for the hideous Carters. And when Maia meets a mysterious boy who lives alone on the wild river shores, she begins a spectacular journey to the heart of an extraordinary new world. An enriching read for ages eight and up. 292 page paperback.
