A Book Review by Juillet
This is such a wonderous book! Sometimes, I would even admit to myself it was better than Harry Potter but I dunno, I like both I guess, and I AM still a Harry Potter Freak. *smiles sheepishly*
Anyways, this is copied from the back of the book, it's about this book:
With his mother in hospital, Alex Cold is sent to his fierce, wonderful gradmother Kate - a pipe-smoking, vodka-drinking old reporter with blue eyes 'as sharp as draggers' points'.
Kate is about to embark on a expedition to the dangerous, remote world of the Amazon rainforest, but rather than change her plans, she simply takes Alex along with her... In an novel rich in adventure, magic, and spirit, internationally-celebrated novelist Isabel Allende takes us on a voyage of discovery and wonder, deep into the heart of the Amazon.
