Riley jumps at the chance to visit the Amazon Rain Forest with Cousin Alice, Aunt Martha, and Uncle Max. Their mission to study Kapok trees and look for new species is interrupted when Riley and Alice become hopelessly lost! To get home, the children must rely on their wits—and each other. The beauty and importance of a threatened region teeming with life is fully explored in this gripping tale. A children’s book series unlike any other, the award-winning Adventures of Riley titles feature non-stop action, wild and weird animal facts, real-life scientists, and stunning visuals that blend vibrant character art with spectacular panoramic photographs.
