Go on an adventure with Katherine Rundell ... _______________ Winner 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 _______________ 'I loved The Explorer' - Jacqueline Wilson 'Rundell is now unarguably in the FIRST RANK' - Philip Pullman 'Read everything she writes' - Daily Mail _______________ 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

I loved The Explorer. On one level its a very exciting adventure story of four children fighting for survival in the Amazon but its also saying profound things about human nature and love and loss * Jacqueline Wilson * Theres a gritty solidity to the horrors and the beauties, and a completely convincing depth to the characters, all of whom I loved. Katherine Rundell is now unarguably in the FIRST RANK * Philip Pullman * An adventure story to die for Rundell 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 wont wait till the suns up. What a discovery * The Times * As extravagantly beautiful as the rainforest it so lovingly describes, I cannot imagine the child who wouldnt be delighted by it * Independent * Plunge into the green wilds of Katherine Rundells marvellous new novel Hannah Horns delicate line drawings, encroach, vine-like, on Rundells 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 * Rundell is an astonishing young talent and her books combine old-fashioned, edge-of-your-seat adventure with richly imagined characters... Read everything she writes * Daily Mail *
