Carrie and her best friend Laura read about the Amazon rainforest--the monkeys, snakes and tarantulas--and decide they need to go to the wilderness themselves.

Carrie''s mom isn''t keen to go camping, but changes her mind when Carrie offers to organize the whole trip herself. Carrie''s brother Ernie reluctantly agrees to go as well, on two conditions: that they take plenty of music and plenty of food.
