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:
Whispers of Trees is a great story to encourage boys to read. The length of the book is easily manageable even for timid readers and there is a mystery to solve with a bit of suspense to keep them engaged. It does all of this while teaching important life lessons like not judging people by their appearance.
The author also weaves some history and culture into the story. The events, although current, take place in an ancient forest in Ireland. Since it's set in our day, the little references to modern technology are sometimes humorous, because they almost sound out of place.
I highly recommend Whispers of Trees for boys ages 9 - 11.
