The Explorer is an exciting book filled with surprises along the way. Four children were flying in a very small propeller plane to their grans. The plane crashed in the Amazon rainforest but was someone there before them? They made fire, they found a den, a sloth, met an Explorer and went night fishing.
My favourite part of the book was when they went night fishing because they made a spear with wood and stones. A character named Fred went plunging into the water and searched for fish. He suddenly came out of the water because a fish bit his toe. The Explorer aimed right at the fishes head and boom! The spear went straight through the fish's head. So it was fish for dinner.
I would really recommend this book.
