Oh my goodness...the kids are going to eat this series up! Especially the boys! I was pleasantly surprised that before I could start the story, I was instructed to flip to the back of the book to read the very short field guide with tips that I needed to remember to survive in the Amazon. I only read for about thirty minutes and met angry bees, found myself dehydrated, and found a poisonous snake under the firewood that I was collecting! I think this series will fly off the shelves!
