Greenman-a face peering out of the leaves, the Celtic god of the woods and a figure familiar to us all. Some say he can still be found deep in the English woods.
In the second Oliver Family Adventure, Greenman, Tyler, Paige and Tommy travel to England and learn about practical jokes, Celtic culture, alternative religions, and why the English drive on the other side of the road, all while immersed in another exciting adventure!
Arriving in Sutton Benger, England-a little village with a lot of history-the Oliver's see a man in green get thrown off a bridge. They soon meet Liam, their amiable host and deacon at the village church, his niece Cerri, a spirited girl with a few stories to tell, and encounter Edwin Bell, a mysterious man who lives in the woods. Add Greenman, the timeless Celtic icon, and talk of magic in the woods and soon young imaginations run wild with fears that may, or may not, be real.
When a practical joke leads to unforeseen peril the children are forced to face their fears. In the end they realize that understanding a person's beliefs is the key to seeing those things that make us the same, rather than those that make us different.
