Product Description

It’s 1910, and orphan Maia is off on the greatest adventure of her life! She is leaving her English boarding school and sailing up the faraway Amazon river, to start a new life with distant relatives there. Nothing can prepare Maia for the fabulous wilderness of the Amazon, or its border-town Manaus, surrounded by moist jungle greenery. But Maia’s relatives are not all they seem, and soon she and a mysterious Indian boy, Finn, are escaping up the Amazon on a journey of discovery and danger. Can they survive in the uncharted world of the river sea – a place of anacondas and insects, crocodiles and monkeys, poisonous trees and strange, impossible beasts? Stuffed with wonderful characters, exotic creatures and fantastical landscapes, Eva Ibbotson’s modern classic is a voyage into the exotic landscape that lies buried within every child’s imagination.

Winner of the Nestlé Smarties Gold Award.

Eva Ibbotson is the award-winning author of many books for children and adults. She has a daughter and three sons, who showed her that children like to read about ghosts, wizards, and witches “because they are just like people but madder and more interesting.”

She was born in Vienna, in Austria, but moved to England with her family when the Nazis came to power. After training to be a physiologist which she didn’t enjoy because she didn’t like doing experiments on animals, Eva got married and had four very nice children.

Her first children’s book, The Great Ghost Rescue was published in 1975, and she is best known for titles like Journey to the River Sea and The Dragonfly Pool. Eva died in 2010, aged 85.
