In this series, 9 years old Riley has traveled the world and explored Africa, Alaska, Brazil, India, Madagascar and French Polynesia with his Uncle Max, Aunt Martha and Cousin Alice.
Eaglemont Press recently sent along a press release that tells us more about newest book and his next adventure in the series. They wrote:
- “In Adventures of Riley: Operation Orangutan, Riley will learn how illegal logging is destroying orangutan habitats and food sources, as well as how important figs and fig wasps are to rain forest survival. The book which is scheduled to be released by Eaglemont Press in April 2007, will feature animals such as orangutans, fig wasps, Sumatran rhinos, pygmy elephants and paradise flying snakes.”
- Each book in the series incorporates a unique mix of animated characters, captivating photographs and gripping storylines. In addition, authors Amand Lumry and Laura Hurwitz work in conjunction with leading scientist from the Smithsonian Institution, the Wildlife Conservation Society and World Wildlife Fund to include fact boxes about the animals featured in books, providing scientific authenticity to each story.
Previous books in the series are: Survival of the Salmon, Mission to Madagascar, Dolphins in Danger, Amazon River Rescue, Safari in South Africa and Tigers in Terai.
