Product description

4.0 out of 5 stars Great summer read!!
Reviewed in the United States on 27 August 2021
This was such a fun read-an epic summer adventure for sure! Milton deals with some pretty serious things before leaving for his summer adventure-his parents fighting constantly & maybe divorcing-& in the process neglecting him & becoming not great people to be around-then he has a humiliating event at school no one will forget, & he loses his only friend.

So Milton can try a little too hard, is a little kooky, & can honestly sometimes be annoying-but that’s all realistic after everything he’s been through. I wanted to shake his parents because they were so wrapped up in their anger & resentment with each other-they couldn’t even take that stupid video game away from him?! Ugh I was so happy when he met Fig, & I loved watching their friendship & bond grow, & how much they helped each other. The whole backstory & current storyline of the island, Dr. Paradis, & even Milton’s uncle & the other kids parents, was so creative & intriguing! Even the names of everything were so creative & phenomenal! I loved it!

Everything was also described in such vivid detail that I felt like I was in the jungle experiencing this adventure with them! So atmospheric. So many great messages in here also. This is the 2nd book I’ve read by Jess Redman, & I really love her writing, & she is just a fantastic storyteller. This is just a charming story full of adventure, puzzles, friendship, clues, courage, honesty, nature, trust, & family. Such a charming story with so much heart. Highly recommend for a fun summer adventure of a read! Beautiful cover by(once again today lol)the AMAZING Matt Rockefeller!💜
