A wonderfully scary Amazon adventure! Allende is a great writer, painting pictures, finding new ways to tell us things we feel we have always known. I was so glad to find she had written a children's book!
A different kind of book for Isabel Allende, but very enjoyable. I think it would be an excellent read for a young teen. A good connection was made between the grandmother and grandson during their adventure. As usual, the writing style was excellent; it was a smooth, easy read.
