Pinhole and the Expedition to the Jungle is a story that has it all; plate tectonics, jungle survival and jokes. The so-small-as-to-be-almost-invisible Pinhole and four ill-matched explorers take on the adventure of their lives in a tropical Indian forest. They find an outdoor tribe living in a freak geological fold formed millions of years ago by the continental drift, and they help the tribe make friends with an unusual visitor.
