Jungle-tastic Tales

Author(s): Helen Pugh

Location(s): Amazon Rainforest, South America

Genre(s): Children, Short Stories

Era(s): Ice Age to modern day

From the author of Inca-tastic Tales comes a new collection of short stories: Jungle-tastic Tales!

Are you brave enough to join Yacumama, the Amazon’s most humongous and powerful snake, on a once-in-a-lifetime trip?
You are? Fab! Then grab your camera, mosquito net and raincoat, and LET’S GO!
You’re gonna travel through thousands of years of history and culture (a lot of which not many grown-ups know about!).
For example, did you know…?
– There were once huge cities in the Amazon rainforest.
– The Amazon is home to millions of different species of animals and plants.
– The first city in Peru to get electric street lights was in the Amazon Region.
– A Premier League footballer grew up in the Ecuadorian Amazon.

If that’s got your interest, then jump in the canoe and we’ll get started straight away. We’ll start with the Ice Age and go right the way through to modern times. Oh, and Yacumama promises not to bite you! She’ll be on her best behaviour.

Praise for The Mysterious Helpers:
“really exciting”
“a good yarn”
“I believe everyone should read this beautiful story.”
