As the Rio Afu ferry twists its way along the , Sean Taylor breathes in not only stories from local people he meets, but also the rich smells, sights and sounds of the extraordinary landscape From trickster jaguars and the slowest of sloths to spine tingling giant serpents and white suited river strangers, his retellings teem with legendary beings, vivid colours, down to earth comedy and the mysteries of the rainforest, revealing people s beliefs along with their way of life Dramatic illustrations, together with notes and a glossary, combine to make this a very special collection, filling a gap in the market for collections from South America 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. 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
