Everwud – My Review!
This book caught my eye and I had to read the blurb. In spite of the fact it is written for a young audience, I pick it up and added it the the TBR list. Here are my thoughts!
A boy, a talking dog, a tree, a treehouse, a castle, and a wonderful story! Everwud caught me by surprise and wouldn’t let me go!
This is a refreshing tale told through the eyes of a 10 year-old orphan. I thought it would be a children’s book, but the story has all the elements of a wonderful book for all ages. With a bit of mystery about Joey’s (our orphan hero) parents, some intrigue about another orphan who lives at the orphanage with Joey, magical charms that help a dog talk, an enigmatic parrot, Joey’s mother trapped in another realm and searching for him, and an all-around good guy who owns a pet shop, Everwud was a most satisfying, quick, and easy read.
Will Joey be able to help his friend and will he discover where his magic comes from? Will he ever be reunited with him mother? Lastly (and maybe most importantly) will they ever finish the treehouse? Read the book to find the answers to all those questions and more!
I recommend this one to middle grade readers, but I think parents will find this a fun and charming book for everyone. I can’t wait to read the next installment of the series!
Bravo Marilyn Dieckmann!!
