I love this book 100% 1-30-14.
This book is an amazing book with great action I would recomrnd it to everyone on this planet
REVIEW: This is the first book I have read by this particular author. It is aimed at upper elementary. It is a well-written book and does keep your attention from the get go. A fast-paced mystery that takes you into the rain forest of Costa Rica. While the book is fiction, it has a lot of interesting facts about the animal life of the rain forest. It’s almost like a “fun” textbook and would be a good book for any teacher to read to their class. I like that the author is a former school teacher and has incorporated such interesting facts into her story. I highly recommend this book.
