The Explorer Synopsis

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 ...

The Explorer Press Reviews

Katherine Rundell just gets better and better. I loved The Explorer. On one level it's a very exciting adventure story of four children fighting for survival in the Amazon - but it's also saying profound things about human nature and love and loss   Jacqueline Wilson 

There's 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

I love every one of Katherine Rundell's stories, but she gets more assured each time - this was everything I wanted it to be and more. Read it!    Kiran Millwood Hargrave, author of The Girl of Ink and Stars

A magnificent adventure    Abi Elphinstone

The Explorer by @kdbrundell is the best Amazon adventure since Journey to the River Sea. A bold, beautiful celebration of hearts with claws   Lauren St John
