Armando's home is the rainforest--he knows its sights, smells, tastes, and sounds. He even knows its moods. From the bottom of the forest floor to the top of the emergent layer, the trees are also home to a multitude of creatures. When outsiders begin laying claim to and destroying the surrounding landscape, the displaced animals find refuge with Armando in the only remaining pocket of untouched forest, his "island." Named a Riverby Award winner in 2024, this poignant tale shows the cumulative and disastrous effects of Amazonian deforestation.
