An Amazon Best Book of the Month: Ages 6-8

"The vibrant colors in Vilela's illustrations and the expressive faces of Cauã and Inaê bring lightheartedness to their dangerous journey and the cyclical living it prescribes. A riveting journey." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"[A]ward-winning Brazilian author and illustrator Vilela brings to life the lush setting of the story. This beautiful book belongs in all picture book collections, specially given the dearth of books about the inhabitants of the Amazon region." --School Library Journal (starred review)

"Children's picture book artwork does not get much better than what Fernando Vilela has created with his intimate view of river life in the Amazon Rainforest. Along the Tapajós takes readers out of their surroundings and transports them to another world where kids do normal kid things but in an uncommon and unusual setting. Along the Tapajós is an exciting book with an intriguing lifestyle story, filled with stunning, vibrant, and unique illustrations." --New York Journal of Books

"This is one of those engaging titles that offers a glimpse of a location new to most American readers. More translations like this one, please!" --Fuse #8 Production

"[A] cheerful introduction to a way of life unfamiliar to most kids, who will enjoy the river life, houses on stilts, and ambient wildlife." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
