LoveReading4Kids Says

Winner of The Costa Children's Book Award 2017

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?

Inspired by an expedition the author made to the Amazon and Eva Ibbotson's Journey to the River Sea 

The Costa Judges say: ‘A masterful, delicious read from start to finish.’

Download a Teacher Resource pack from Blooomsbury Children's Publishing, based on The Explorer. A modern classic of an adventure that will not only transport you away from the classroom to the Amazon, but also spark the imaginations of all of the young explorers in your class. (And yes, we know there are many!) The lessons in this pack serve as a mini scheme of work with literacy objectives, providing material for five or more KS2 lessons – perfect for classes of any ability in years five to six. Even better, the final outcome of these lessons is for each child in your class to let their creative talents loose and produce some writing of their own – following in Katherine Rundell’s adventurous footsteps!
