Title: Christopher's Adventures in Evergreen (Evergreen Series Book 1)
Author: Wendy Altshuler
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy, Fantasy
From Award Winning Author Wendy Altshuler comes Book I in the Evergreen Series:
Lost deep in the forest after straying from a family picnic, a boy from post-World War II England befriends an awakened tree from another dimension, and together they must unearth ancient truths to end the war of the trees.
From a review of the series: "A fantasy novel meant for young adults but appealing to readers and fantasy fans of all ages, following the adventures of a young boy, his close friend, and the bond he shares with a tree come to life. An emotionally moving, uplifting, and wholesome fable...highly recommended is the first novel in the Evergreen series, [Christopher's] Adventures In Evergreen. " -Midwest Book Review
"From my perspective as a veteran elementary school teacher, I predict that kids will like the wacky conversations and situations in this book. Try this book on a fourth or fifth-grader with a sense of humor and a good vocabulary." -Jean Marchand, Rambles.net
A fantastic story for the young reader! An amazing tale of adventure, suspense and the power of belief!
Christopher's journey through the air door not only unlocks a new world to him but it unlocks something inside of him that he didn't know existed.
The best line of the book has to be 'Liar, liar, tree on fire!' I laughed so hard I disturbed other people in the lunch room!
A superb standalone story that is also a fine first book of a brilliant series.
