Reviews! Reviews!

Kids know Twig won't come to their birthday parties, nor will she invite them to her house, so it's hard for her to build friendships.

QUESTION: Why does Twig's mother forbid her from spending time with her next door neighbor, Julia?

They have been safe from the pesky humans for millions of years, although they have been pushed farther and farther away from the spaces they enjoy.

QUESTION: Who must Firedrake, Sorrell and Ben beware of on their journey?

While watching the meteor shower Marten can't help but get frustrated with his younger brother, Aldrin. How could he bring one of Marten's valuable collector's items on the trip without asking? When the toy breaks Marten wishes his brother away... READ MORE!


QUESTION: Who comes to help Marten rescue his brother?
