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.

My Review:

This is a great story for young readers. It has a great sense of nature and a great feeling of listening to your heart. I love that the author combined fantasy with folklore to create this perfect length story. The author also based his forest on the description that an older Irishman had told him. I also liked the pictures in the book. Most were taken by the author. There are also cars and cell phones in the story. There is enough technology to keep today's kids interested. I liked the ending with the broom, and I can not wait to read more about the whispers. I am giving this book a 4/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
