When Stephen, raised as an orphan, learns that he has inherited an estate in the Cornish countryside, he has no idea what to expect. And when he arrives at Lansbury Hall, there is no one to greet him . . . or so he thinks. But waiting for Stephen are his great uncle's diary of a journey long ago up the Amazon with a native guide . . . and a hidden valley filled with creatures from the Amazon rainforest.
This was great book, a bit long and boring in the beginning, but he end is AMAZING! It makes you want to keep reading/listening.
I think this book is wonderful and has wonderful things a techer would want in the books her students read, but this book just doesn't get a place in your mind. Don't get me wrong, this book is heartwarming and things, but it is sssooo confusing!!! I could write a better book then this, and you know what? This book is just sssoooo unmature and confusing. Don't waste your precious money on this confusing and unpersuading book unless you want to teach you children or students some very good sentences and adjectives while showing them botany. Think of this book as a textbook for botany.
