Synopsis: An ancient forest, a dark night, a strange woman—and whispers.
What is going on in this eerie Irish forest? Ten-year-old Declan has to find out. His brother is missing and only he can solve the mystery. But why him? He doesn’t even like his always-yelling brother who his sister says was eaten by wolves. But there are no wolves in Ireland.
Then a witch-like woman tells him the two of them have to go into the spooky woods to save his brother. But from what? The strange trees only whisper the answer and he must discover what they are trying to tell him. But he will learn much more than he ever dreamed.
Whispers of Trees is a fun, page-turning thriller hinting of myth that delivers a multicultural adventure.
This is the second book in the Mythic Adventures Collection. The first book is The Boy Who Flew With Eagles. You can preview it here:
The Boy Who Flew With Eagles
I found Whispers of Trees to be a bit different from what I was expecting. The first chapter starts off a bit eerily as we meet Declan and his family and learn that his little brother Colin is missing somewhere in an ancient Irish forest filled with large and twisting trees.
The story is told from Declan’s perspective and we join him on his journey to not only find his brother but find out about himself as well.
The book is a quick and interesting read. What really intrigued me about Whispers of Trees was the stories and legends about the trees. The book serves as a great reminder that we should respect the forest and all living things. I think that from time to time we should all remember to listen to the whispers of the trees.
“I like it. It was interesting. The pictures of the trees were cool because I saw their faces. I didn’t like that Declan didn’t like his little brother. I love my little brother. I liked the ending because I learned about Mrs. O’Leary and I wonder if Declan’s mom knew her.”
