Oliver Strange and the Forest of Secrets | Children's Fiction

Dianne Hofmeyr , Rob Foote


A lost city of gold . . . Anacondas more than 30 feet long . . . Jaguars lurking in the dark . . . and a frog so poisonous, a single drop of its toxin will kill up to twenty people. The stakes are high! These are the forests of Colombia where drug traffi ckers grow their coca to turn into cocaine.
When Oliver Strange arrives at the village of the Embera people with his friend, Zinzi, and his herpetologist father, they meet a mysterious boy called Fabio and come face to face with brutal guerrilla fighters. Can Ollie help Fabio outwit them to protect a horde of ancient gold? Will he survive a swim through the tunnels of an underwater cave, to find Fabio when he disappears?
