Journey to the River Sea – Eva Ibbotson


Journey to the River Sea – Eva Ibbotson

journey-to-the-river-seaThe story is about an orphan child named Maia who finds out that she has relatives who live in the Amazon Rainforest and is so excited to go. So Maia sets off on a journey halfway around the world with her new governess ,Miss Minton , but she soon finds out that her newfound family are not as nice as she hopes…….

When she gets there she finds a pair of spoilt , spiteful twins waiting for her and they don’t even go out and explore the rainforest!!! But after a while she found forest boy , Finn, who helped her, even though Maia found him a bit strange at first. She soon finds out that he is hiding in the Rainforest and he has a good reason to do so. Can Maia help him stay in the rainforest?

My favourite part is when Maia gets taken on a boat to a beautiful lagoon where Finn’s dad lived (who is dead now ) and where Finn lives now. Now Finn has to find his mother’s old tribe so that they can look after him just like Finn’s dad told him to .

My rating for this book is 4 3/4 stars.     I hope that you read this book as I am pretty sure that you will enjoy it 🙂
