Abstract:
"Dr. Hank Witherspoon has disappeared. When Jack and his genius siblings, Ava and Matt, find Hank's lab ransacked, they uncover clues pointing them to Brazil--but many questions remain. Why was Hank studying dangerous electric eels? And who is trying to steal his inventions? Their investigation leads them to a soccer prodigy, his savvy sister, a business tycoon who zips around on motorized boots, and a strangely incompetent riverboat captain. In the depths of the Amazon rain forest, the three siblings and their new friends must overcome deadly piranhas, stealthy jaguars, and the dreaded "Trail of Pain" to save Hank ... and make it out alive."--Page 4 of cover.

Summary

Summary

Famed inventor Henry "Hank" Witherspoon has gone missing, and it's up to Jack and his brilliant siblings, Ava and Matt, to find him.

At Hank's ransacked lab, the siblings discover clues to the project he's been working on--a new way to generate and store electricity, inspired by the electric eels of the Amazon.

The kids travel deep into the Amazon jungle, following a series of clues Hank has left. Relying on genius, cunning, and new technology, the kids overcome strange creatures, a raging river, and some very clever foes to find their friend and protect his big idea.

Like volumes one and two, Lost in the Jungle features a glossary of terms and an experiment kids can do at home or at school.
