Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

A 15-year-old accompanies his eccentric grandmother on a writing assignment in South America to search for a legendary nine-foot-tall "Beast." PW said the "action and outcome seem cleverly crafted to deliver the moral, but many readers will find the author's formula successful with its environmentalist theme, a pinch of the grotesque and a larger dose of magic." Ages 10-up. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
