Professional reviews

"When their small plane crashes and the pilot dies, four children are stranded alone in the Amazon jungle. Thus begins an exhilarating and sometimes harrowing old-fashioned adventure that comes beautifully, vibrantly alive on audio. Narrator Peter Noble is utterly convincing as Fred, Con, Lila, and, especially, 5-year-old Max. With subtle variations, Noble gives them all distinctive voices that reflect their personalities and backgrounds, and he communicates their fear and excitement as they struggle to survive, learn to work together, and discover hidden wonders of the jungle. But their greatest discovery of all is an ancient city--and the mysterious explorer who lives there. Listeners will be riveted, breathless, until the very end.
