By Katherine Rundell, and and, Hannah Horn
After crashing hundreds of miles from civilisation in the Amazon rainforest, Fred, Con, Lila and Max are utterly alone and in grave danger. They have no food, no water and no chance of being rescued. But they are alive and they have hope. As they negotiate
the wild jungle they begin to find signs that something – someone – has been there before them. Could there possibly be a way out after all?
It was amazing
This is by far on of my favorite books, adventure, survival and comedy that made me cry with laughter. All of the characters had amazing backstorys and now i will be reading more Katherine Rundell books from this day forth. Amazing!
I chose the book ‘The Explorer’ because we read some of it at school and I was hooked! I like the book- the story plot, lore and back story. This book is set in the Amazon and I would recommend this book to people who like adventure stories. It is a chapter book with lovely detailed pen and ink illustrations by Hannah Horn at the start of each chapter.
It was ok
A very exiting adventure story
An amazing adventure story that is rich in description. I loved how the friendship develops between the children and then with the Explorer. My favourite part was the relationship between Lila and Baca and I was delighted with the ending for them. I liked how Katherine Rundell introduces the topic of conservation and western influences in the rainforest through the Explorer. It really made me think.
This is such a creative book and it makes an image in my head of what Katherine Randell is describing. I love that it’s set in a jungle and it’s all about what adventures they go on and what went wrong and how they can fix the problem.
The reason why I didn’t give it 5 stars is because she sometimes uses the same describing word a bit to much so it then makes me a bit bored, but other than that this book is one I recommend.
It was a great adventure story, exciting and interesting.
This book is highly recommended for people who like adventure stories and who are also in for a bit of comedy attached to it. It's very exciting and also a gripping story of those whose adventures ended up being their careers, for example; Bear Grylls.

I loved this book because it had lots of cliff hangers. I loved every single part of this book! I would recommend this book to everyone!
It is a very exciting and adventurous book. It is fiction and the person I like best is Fred, because he likes climbing trees and isn't afraid of trying something new.
I would recommend it to someone else.

I liked this book as it was all about adventure and the kids did everything they could to survive in the jungle.
I liked the boy named Fin as he was the most passionate about surviving in the jungle. He was also the one who kept the group together.

A great story which keeps your interest throughout. Love the development of the characters with some surprises along the way.
it is about 4 kids who crashed in the rain forest and it is like one of the best book I have seen
I love it
I loved the adventures and humor.Con because of her sense of humor and Fred finds her annoying.Yes, because of its humor.
It is a very engaging book about 4 children who land in the Amazon. But then they find evidence that someone has been there before them and someone might even be there now...
I'm just speechless. All I can say is that it was one of the best books I've ever ready and would read it all over again. Amazing novel!!!
I think this book is very exciting and always full of new adventures to go on.
It is an interesting novel by a great author all about a group of kids who's plane crashed on a journey so they had to work together in the forest to find their way back and they get some help from an explorer call Percy Fawcett.
This book is amazing! I really like it and I recommend that people who like survival books read this. It was very tense and it shows what you can do to survive in the difficult places you are in! Read this book!
This book is brilliant! I love how the kids all survive in the Amazon rainforest when their plane crashes. It's really exciting and there's some funny bits as well. I would definitely recommend this book!
I found this book quite slow going. There are some excellent sections where it is fast paced and exciting; however, other sections seemed to take a while to get going.
The best book ever.
Fiction it was an adventure story with great descriptions I recommended it to any one who loves adventure books.
I would recommend it and I liked the character of Fred the best
