The third adventure in the brand-new 12-book collectible series for young readers from survival expert and Chief Scout Bear Grylls.
Omar is fiercely competitive and very impatient about anything that holds him back... especially other people. Activity camp is brilliant because he's the best at all the challenges, it's just so annoying that not all his teammates are as quick or brave or strong as he is. It would be much easier just to ditch them and go it alone. But when he's given a mysterious compass it transports him to a thick jungle that is impossible to get through quickly - he has to learn to move with the rhythm of the environment around him with the help of his guide, adventurer Bear Grylls. Can his time in the rainforest change his mind about what makes someone successful? And who will he give the compass to next?
Each book in this fun 12-book series from BEAR GRYLLS follows a different child on the outdoor activity camp. Once they are given the magical compass, they meet the inspirational adventurer in an amazing place and learn new skills and facts they can take with them back to their real life.
Bear and his wife Shara live on a barge on the River Thames in London and on a small remote Welsh island. They have three sons: Jesse, Marmaduke and Huckleberry.
