Reviews

"An admiring portrait of a father's example and an introduction to the rainforest."
--Wall Street Journal

"Gusti's presentation of the Indigenous people he stayed with on a volunteer trip to the jungle is tender and respectful and rendered with humor through Theo, whose childlike fascination invites young readers to vicariously share his learning."
--Booklist
