The Explorer by Katherine Rundell

Hi everyone, I hope you’re enjoying the titles I’ve reviewed so far. Since the last few posts have taken you on journeys around most of the northern hemisphere, I thought we should navigate our way into a region south of the equator. The title this week is set somewhere in the past and our young heroes find themselves inside our planet’s largest rainforest…
