Dads ‘N’ Lads

Journey to the River Sea by Eva Ibbotson
Published by Macmillan Children’s Books, 2002

The girls in Maia’s class told her what to expect when she reached the Brazilian jungle. ‘There are huge mosquitos which bite you. You turn as yellow as a lemon and then you die.’

But Maia, an orphan can’t wait to start the long sea voyage. She is to begin a new life with relatives she has never met, a thousand miles up the Amazon river.

‘Pretty much perfect. A richly satisfying, superbly written adventure’ Sunday Telegraph.
