‘The Explorer‘ is a brave, resolute, tug on the heartstrings adventure story.Furthermore, it has stirrings of Famous Five/ Swallows and Amazons/ Lord of the Flies/ Journey to the River Sea, and much more besides. This wonderful story is an adventure story classic! We recommend it to all ages- especially as the bedtime read you’ve been looking for!
