Geronimo Stilton. Rumble in the Jungle.  (Brazil)

I, Geronimo Stilton, was off to the wildest part of Brazil – the Amazon jungle! I ended up on a hunt for a rare crystal treasure, which was stolen from a native tribe in the heart of the forest. I’d encounter alligators, snakes, piranhas, and other dangers on my way. Holey cheese! What an adventure!
