Small Fry Pick of the Week: Horizon

 Cover image for Horizon

Horizon by Scott Westerfield
Ages 8-12

The crash is just the beginning.  When a plane goes down in the arctic, eight young survivors step from the wreckage expecting to see nothing but ice and snow.  Instead, they find themselves lost in a strange jungle with no way to get home and little hope of rescue.

Food is running out. Water is scarce. And the jungle is full of threats unlike anything the survivors have ever seen before--from razor-beaked shredder birds to carnivorous vines to the mysterious predator stalking the wilderness in the dead of night, whose chilling cries seem to be getting closer. .
