Upside Down in the Jungle

Mad and Roo’s world turns upside down when their father, a keen bird-watcher, vanishes in the jungle. And when they receive a Very Strange and Incredibly Creepy Letter (which Roo swears is in code), they know something bad has happened to him. So the girls set off to investigate, determined to track him down amid the smoking volcanoes of the Costa Rican jungle. With the help of a golden-eyed boy, a rare bird and some weird flowers that grow between Roo’s toes, can they rescue their father and solve this jungle mystery?

    Upside down in the Jungle is a book about romance, mystery and adventure. There are many people with different jobs, for example: the Bird Guy, a yogafied mum and a few children who get caught up in their dad’s work. I would recommend this book to girls and boys aged between 10 and 12. This story is about the Bird Guy’s family and their story of the Spa’s secret work. In the middle and at the end their are surprise twists, which made this book even better.
