Evie in the Jungle

« Back
Written by: Matt Haig
Illustrated by: Emily Gravett
Publisher: Canongate

A TRULY WILD ADVENTURE! Eleven-year-old Evie has a talent. She can HEAR what animals are thinking and she can TALK to them with her mind. When Evie goes on a trip to the Amazon rainforest, her powers are put to the test. She makes friends with pink river dolphins, must save a sloth, and discovers the secret life of a jaguar. Soon she sees the jungle is in serious and deadly danger. And has a rather risky plan to help save it…

A brilliant new story from bestselling author Matt Haig featuring Evie from Evie and the Animals and with illustrations by the award-winning Emily Gravett.

“As an animal lover I really liked this book. The book is about when Evie talks to animals and becomes famous. She doesn’t like being famous but through her fame she helps to save endangered animals. This is a great book for world book day for anyone who loves animals and has an interest in climate change.” (AS100, aged 8)
