Description

In a novel rich in adventure, magic and spirit, internationally-celebrated novelist Isabel Allende takes readers of all ages on a voyage of discovery and wonder, deep into the heart of the Amazon.

With his mother in hospital, too ill to look after him, Alex is sent to live with his grandmother Kate-a fearless reporter with blue eyes 'as sharp as daggers points'. Kate is about to embark on an expedition to the dangerous, remote world of the Amazon rainforest, but rather than change her plans, she simply takes Alex along with her.

They set off with their team-including a local guide and his daughter Nadia, a girl with wild, curly hair and skin the colour of honey-in search of a legendary, marauding creature known to locals only as the beast, only to find out much, much more about the mysteries of the jungle and its inhabitants.

REVIEWS

A wonderful, seemingly effortless storyteller; you feel yourself sink into the folds of her narrative with an almost childlike certainty that you’re going to hear a good story well told.

-Irish Independent

Allende’s writing is so vivid we hear the sounds, see the bright birds, smell and even taste the soft fruit.

-The Times
