As they journey through the rain forest in search of the Uncle Al, they encounter all sorts of jungle creatures. When they are finally saved by Uncle Al, they know much more about the Australian rain forest and so do all the readers of this book.

Content Summary: This book presents information about rain forest and animals that live there in the form of a story. This book is great for making learning about the rain forest fun and helping students remember facts about the rain forest. It can be paired very well wtth "Afternoon on the Amazon" by Mary Pope Osbourne.

Andrew and his cousin, Judy, along with a small robot, Thudd, are shrunk into minuture size as they are lost in the jungle waiting on the arrival of their uncle. They are faced with many animals along their way. This is an adventure book that would be great for the students to read to introduce them to different species of animals in the jungle. ( )

Andrew and his cousin Judy end up in the Australian rain forest as two humans who have been shrunk to bug size. They encounter many and varied dangerous animals and plants. Thud (robot) helps them with important facts and info and they communicate through thud with Uncle Al (the inventor/scientist) who plans a rescue. the book leaves you haning in the middle of the rescue unsure and wondering what in the world will happen... This book can be paired with Afternoon on the Amazon (Magic Treehouse book) and the non-fiction research guide written to go with the Magic Treehouse book.
