Description

Even though he's secretly terrified of deep water, and all the scary things that swim below, Tate wants to shake his boring reputation, and he agrees to travel with his class up the Amazon River to help build a village school. He has his fingers and toes crossed that he won't see any giant snakes or hungry piranhas.

But there are even scarier things than anacondas lurking in the jungles of South America, and Tate soon learns of the legend of El Tunchi, a vengeful spirit that terrorizes those who harm the rainforest. When creepy things start happening and Tate keeps hearing El Tunchi's haunting whistle, he's sure the group must have angered someone. Or something. He and his friends need to figure out a way to make amends and get out of the jungle alive.

Editorial Reviews

"A fast-paced hi-lo novel. Full of adventure, laughs and Amazon facts, I highly recommend this book for young readers...Jungle Jitters has a lot to offer. Not only is it very funny—always a plus!—but Dalrymple does a great job of incorporating facts about the Amazon without making it feel like a geography lesson...A must for middle school classrooms and reluctant or struggling readers."

— Bookish Notions blog

"Dalrymple does a great job of exploring the jungle creatures and their habitat."

— Resource Links

"Each chapter ends on a suspenseful note, making readers want to read on...Jungle Jitters is short and easy to read but lots of fun. Recommended."
