Life in the jungle is never boring.
From the moment he was born, Jasper’s curiosity has consumed him. With his brother Willie, they’ve made new friends and learned more about the Amazon rainforest.
The youngsters have grown close. Jasper’s main job is to make sure his brother stays safe, but that’s easier said than done: the jungle is full of dangers, and if they’re not careful, things can quickly get out of hand.
New challenges are always around the corner. Determined to make his mother proud, Jasper vows to protect himself and his friends. If they’re to make it home in one piece, they’ll need to trust one another, and those they come across. It never hurts to give someone a helping hand, either.
As they discover Amazon's secrets, each new experience opens their minds to new possibilities, and new friends make their unexpected trips worthwhile. Though trouble tends to follow them, Jasper and his friends do their best to overcome the adversities and come up on top.

Jasper and his family enjoy living in the Amazon jungle. It’s full of family, friends, and adventures. Knowing their sister, Piper, will soon learn how to fly, will only add to the fun this family of birds will embark on.
The brothers, Jasper and Willie, are growing up in this wonderland of colors, sounds, and smells. They will need to rely on each other and friends as a strange new animal turns into a new buddy, while another can disrupt their lives forever.

Desde el momento que nació, la curiosidad de Jasper lo ha consumido. Con su hermano Willie, han hecho nuevos amigos y han aprendido más sobre la selva Amazónica.
Los jóvenes han aprendido a quererse. La responsabilidad principal de Jasper es asegurarse de que su hermano esté a salvo, pero es más fácil decirlo que hacerlo: La jungla está llena de peligros, y si no son cuidadosos, todo se puede salir de control rápidamente.
Nuevos desafíos siempre están por venir. Determinado a hacer a su madre orgullosa, Jasper jura proteger a sus amigos y a sí mismo. Si van a volver a casa en una sola pieza, tendrán que confiar en el uno al otro, y en aquellos con los que se encuentren. Nunca está de más ayudar a otros.
Mientras descubren los secretos del Amazonas, cada nueva experiencia abre sus mentes a nuevas posibilidades, y los nuevos amigos hacen que sus aventuras inesperadas valgan la pena.

Cuando conoce a Charlie – un mono araña con un amor por la comida y una personalidad relajada – se da cuenta que va a tener una aventura que nunca pensó que sería posible. A pesar de que eso signifique enfrentar peligros y preocupar a su madre hasta más no poder.
Al explorar las fronteras de la selva, Jasper se da cuenta que el mundo es más grande de lo que creía. ¿Quiénes son esas extrañas criaturas que han venido aquí? Con Willie y Charlie acompañándolo, lo van a averiguar.
We tend to think of squirrels as cute furry creatures that scamper around playing while looking for nuts. Yet I’ve a different outlook on these rodents from Hades.
As an animal lover, one who’s owned by eight birds, I’ve had the opportunity to observe a group of squirrels around my home here in the suburbs for the past year. The experience I’ve gained gives a whole new meaning to the words ‘little darlings’.
I offer you a unique perspective of the furry friends entangled within our everyday lives. Their antics and shenanigans have earned them the name, the Squirrel Mafia. This book chronicles my ongoing battle with these pesky little critters.

A flower never knows what will happen from one day to the next. One moment, she can be sitting pretty. The next, her petals are scattered to the wind.
Though a flower’s life is precarious at best, there are times when she becomes the sole center of attention. Sure, she has to share the spotlight with the rest of the bunch, but at least she can revel in the attentions bestowed upon her.
A tooth’s life is never easy. It puts up with multitudes of abuse. From the acidic effects of the atrocious Pepsi, to the sugary sweetness brought about by chocolate, its pain knows no bounds.
Immersed in darkness, it’s rare for a tooth to see the light. Living a solitary life, each day blends into the next without the hope of seeing something new. Death and decay is a certainty many see on a day to day basis.
Survival is the key to living a long, pain-free life. When that very option is threatened, it’s the tooth’s obligation to make his beloved caretaker see the light. The hope of garnering a longer lifespan is a must, as is a trip to the dentist. The question is, how can one measly tooth bring about a much needed change without causing any further pain in the process?
