Nine-year-old Riley travels to Brazil to visit his uncle Max, aunt Martha, and cousin Alice. While sightseeing Riley
and Alice spot some unfamiliar animals called Capybara’s. They follow them. Without realizing the children have strayed
too far from camp. In their quest to find home Riley and Alice encounter the many wonders of the Amazon.
This is a delightful book that children as well as adults will enjoy. Teachers and librarians everywhere can also use
the Adventures of Riley -- Amazon River Rescue, as a great learning tool!
The book contains a glossary, hidden compass and a passport to Riley’s world. A portion of the proceeds will
also go to help save animals.
