“Aldo tells a classic-style adventure tale with hints of Kipling’se Jungle Book, and Aesop’s Fables, and merges it with the educational wealth of an Amazon nature guide. The lushly illustrated jungle, full of indigenous flora and fauna, immerses the reader into the world of Rusty Coati and his rainforest friends. My kids are all grown up, but I would have loved taking them on this adventure when they were younger!”
—Joe Sutphin, New York Times bestselling illustrator,
Word of Mouse, Raffie on the Run, and many others.
“Aldo Galli has created a delightful adventure with a curious coati named Rusty! Beautifully illustrated and full of unusual jungle animals, this story also sends an environmentally important message about the value of the Amazon rainforest at a time when it is most threatened. There’s also a very useful glossary to help young
readers build their vocabulary.”
—James Cesarini, an avid Watership Down fan and
discerning reader of children’s books.
