Reviews

β˜… "Montgomery thoroughly mines the social and economic effects the piabas have on locals alongside an in-depth exploration of the Amazon river and its ecosystems. The science and sociology are interesting and unusual, and the narrative itself enthralling...A true-to-form installment in a valuable series."--Booklist, starred review

β˜… "Another addition to a spectacular series, this is an eye-opening first purchase for science collections."--SLJ, starred review

"Their trip is reported smoothly and illustrated with well-chosen photographs...An adventure that might help protect an ecosystem."--Kirkus
