The King of the Trees Nov 10, 2002
If you like Lord of the Rings thwn you will enjoy this book as well as the others written by William Burt. he is also a friend of mine. These books will keep you reading, full of adventure at each turn of the page!
The King of the Trees Jan 30, 2001
As a three time teacher of the year I can fully recommend The King of the Trees for fun, adventure reading. The old theme of good vs evil is replayed in a refreshing setting. The plot and characters are believable and enjoyable. While the end is predictable to older readers, children will love this story. Parallels can be drawn between other good vs evil plots including: Lord of the Rings, The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe, and many Bible stories.
A Imagination Inspirer all will Love Jan 7, 2001
This is wonderful book that you and your children will absolutely love. We read this every night together before going to bed and every night I was begged if we could read just one more chapter. This imaginative book will draw you and your children in and you will love the characters you come to know and the places you will go. I highly recommend this book and we are anxiously awaiting another to follow.
"May your sythan-ar ever flourish!"
..... and may you never run into a "yeg" upon your travels in the forest.
Excellent choice for all ages Nov 14, 1999
King of the Trees is a childrens story of magic, imagination and fire breathing dragons coupled with Christian values and Biblical inferences which is wonderful reading for all ages. As a senior citizen I have read it from cover to cover and enjoyed every chapter. I will definitely recommend it to my children and grandchildren as a classic.
A wonderful book for all ages! Got to read this one! Nov 10, 1999
This book is by far better than C.S. Lewis's the "The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe." I read this book to my four year old son, and eigth year old daughter. They loved it as much as I did! Each character is developed well, and the plot surpasses any that we have read this year. If you only read one book, please let it be this one. This is the perfect gift for any age, expecially pre-teen and teen. These days, they seem to be hungry for the drama and excitement that each chapter is filled with. Rolin's adventure to find himself as well as his purpose, lead him to discover not only a world that he did not know existed all around him, but also how important he is to that world and others.
