Book DescriptionWinner of the Children's Book Prize Winner of the Costa Children's Book Award 2017 Winner of the London Book Fair Children's Travel Book of the Year Longlisted for the CILIP Carnegie Medal 'I loved The Explorer' Jacqueline Wilson 'Rundell is now unarguably in the FIRST RANK' Philip Pullman 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 ...
Editorial ReviewRundell is a class act - her beautiful descriptions of the rainforest could turn the head of a Mayan statue. And scrap bedtime: her need-to-know next chapters just won't wait till the sun's up. What a discovery * The Times * As extravagantly beautiful as the rainforest it so lovingly describes, I cannot imagine the child who wouldn't be delighted by it * Independent * Plunge into the green wilds of Katherine Rundell's marvellous new novel ... Hannah Horn's delicate line drawings, encroach, vine-like, on Rundell's dangerous, intoxicating pages in this love song to the natural world. It is essential reading for lovers of Eva Ibbotson * Guardian * For sheer adventure, The Explorer is hard to trump * Daily Telegraph * Rundell conjures up a world of natural beauty - pre-internet - where survival depends on cooperation. Her vivid locations are almost characters in themselves ... Terrific * Daily Mail *
