Overview

An immensely enjoyable fast-paced story full of twists, turns and surprises that will keep the reader turning the pages.

When three children, Joe, Sally and Amy visit their grandmother's home in the quiet village of Hilldale they witness a nearby forest undergoing deforestation to allow for development. As they venture inside for a last look they discover that there is more to it than just plants and trees. Something's amiss or so claim some of the village folk. Just who or what is responsible for the disappearances of all the fruits and animals from the strange forest? Are the culprits a band of midget people living nearby? Or, are a trio of shady outsiders who enter the village involved? The children's investigations lead them to make a surprising connection and uncover a secret that can only be kept from the outside world if the deforestation ends. But are the village adults willing to listen to their pleas or must the children find another way to save the forest? With many people to satisfy and livelihoods at stake the children lay out their plans and in the process discover the real identity of The Forest Keepers.

    This book is a classic.

    This is a great book. Quite different from the usual fare that have come up in the recent past. Children and adults alike should love the story of three children who try to save a forest from deforestation. Good characterization and an imaginative plot with lots of twists, turns and surprises make it a fun read. Carl Gordon is a very talented author.
