Publisher's Summary

Fred awoke to find that a snake was watching him and that there was an aeroplane in the trees. It was on fire. Being on fire was a quality it shared with much of the surrounding jungle.

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?

    "An excellent story"

    A gripping story with humour and emotion. The characters are well- balanced and the production was superbly read. Bravo!

    "Family listening- totally top!"

    Very funny. Loved Max! Fantastic journey through the Amazon with inspiration fromJourney to the River Sea., another family favourite.
    Thought it better than Rooftoppers, which we also enjoyed.
    Characters well developed and totally gripped by them throughout.
