Product description

It’s 1910, and orphan Maia is off on the greatest adventure of her life! She is leaving her English boarding school and sailing up the faraway Amazon river, to start a new life with distant relatives there. Nothing can prepare Maia for the fabulous wilderness of the Amazon, or its border-town Manaus, surrounded by moist jungle greenery. But Maia’s relatives are not all they seem, and soon she and a mysterious Indian boy, Finn, are escaping up the Amazon on a journey of discovery and danger. Can they survive in the uncharted world of the river sea – a place of anacondas and insects, crocodiles and monkeys, poisonous trees and strange, impossible beasts? Stuffed with wonderful characters, exotic creatures and fantastical landscapes, Eva Ibbotson’s modern classic is a voyage into the exotic landscape that lies buried within every child’s imagination.

Winner of the Nestlé Smarties Gold Award.
