The third installment in a trilogy for young adults stands on its own as a book about adventure and the complex relationships between peoples, cultures, animals, and the environment. Blair Brown is a strong guide for this adventure. Her storytelling powers bring to life the jungle, the animals, and the human characters. Her cool, even presentation of the extraordinary adds to its believability. Allende treats her young readers with respect for their intellect. Brown complements that respect by drawing out the suspense and drama with subtlety and giving a nuanced narration that will stimulate their imaginations.
