Jake and his younger brother Tommy are on their first camping trip. While exploring in the woods on Marsh Island, they lose their way.

For my mom, who loved the woods.
Chapter One EXPLORING
Jake crouched under the giant tree. It felt rough and scratchy on his hand. The smell of the bark made his nose sting. He d never been in the woods before. There were hundreds and thousands of trees, and no one around but him. He could be anything he wanted to be in these woods.
I m a panther, thought Jake. Sleek, black and dangerous. I slink through the grass. My paws are silent on the jungle floor. My eyes dart through the trees. I hear the crack of a twig, see movement in the shadows. I spot my prey.
Jake? Jake? It was Jake s brother Tommy, making as much noise as a T. rex. The racket would scare off prey for miles. Jake spun around. A hunter! he thought. I won t let him capture me. He crouched lower and crept behind a tree trunk.
Jake, come out! called Tommy. This isn t funny. His voice wobbled.
Jake tilted his head up and sniffed. I smell fear , he thought.
Tommy s stumbling footsteps moved closer. Dad won t like this, he said to the forest around him. We re supposed to stay near the tent.
Jake scowled. Tommy was such a spoilsport. Jake had wanted to leave him at home. This was Jake s first camping trip, and he d wanted it to be special. He was nine now, and he had wanted to spend some time alone with Dad. But Tommy had whined and complained, and Dad had let him come.
Marsh Island was no place for Tommy. Tommy was only seven. He didn t like bugs, he didn t like tents and he didn t like noises in the night. There were plenty of noises on Marsh Island. Even Jake had lain awake the first couple of nights, listening to the strange sounds of the forest.
I wait, thought Jake. He comes closer. A few more steps...wait for it...
Jake?
With a mighty roar, Jake jumped out from behind the tree.
Tommy screamed.
Jake fell to the ground, laughing.
You-you-, Tommy choked out.
