I bought this book to read to my year 3 class (7-8 years old) to support our work on the rainforest. They loved it and so did I. The stories are by turns sad, funny, thought provoking... The diary entries are evocative and the illustrations are simply beautiful.

... in that it's illustrated in such a way as to appeal more to the adults paying for the book than the children who are supposed to be reading it. In this case the very bright, vibrant colours get to be a bit wearing after a while and the text is a curious mix of personal notes from a journey down the Amazon and folk tales picked up along the way, neither of which, from what I've seen, are of great interest to children. There are one or two stories here that are quite nice and one or two that are frankly rather dull and the overall impression is one of a book which is very well intentioned rather than well thought through.

Super book with fantastic stories that all the children have loved in my class, would highly recommend this to any teachers doing a rainforest topic!
