The Desert challenge

Sophie loves activity camp... but is terrified of insects. It's so bad that she won't go into the tent on her own, just in case something flies at her, or she steps on a creepie-crawlie. But when she's given a compass by one of the other boys on the campsite, Sophie is magically transported to the desert on an adventure where they're impossible to avoid! With the help of survival expert Bear Grylls as her guide, she learns how to withstand the extreme temperatures of the desert and how to spot mirages, encounter giant camel spiders, deadly scorpions and snakes, but will Sophie overcome her fear of insects back in the real world? And who will she give the compass to next?
