The Ghost Treeby Yvette Landry, Cullen Bernard
In her first children's story, The Ghost Tree, Singer-Songwriter Yvette Landry's Cajun childhood contributes to a tale rich with the intrigue and adventure that only the Louisiana swamps can provide. The story begins in her ancestral home, the small, somewhat isolated community of Isle Labbé, and ends in the swamps of the Atchafalaya Basin. Her grandfather tells her of an ancient Native American legend: A cursed tree that comes to life every Halloween. Unlucky travelers who stumble across the tree on that fateful night are never seen again. He would know after all, he's the only one ever to survive an encounter with ... The Ghost Tree.

A well told story of my favorite kind: one that transports the reader to a place and time beyond the known. I've been up and down the West Coast, talked to lots of locals. Now I need to get myself down to Louisiana, too. I hope and expect Ms. Landry to write more!
The Ghost Tree is a good read. The illustrations are great and the plot draws you in and carries you though. I can't wait to share it with the young people in my life.
My grandson's Luke, 8yo and Evan, 5yo were totally absorbed by the tale of Pop and his brothers journey into the swamp. It does get a little scary but does a good job of preparing you for the trouble that awaits in the Catahoula swamp. There are life lessons in the book that I was amazed to see that they picked up on. I won't elaborate because it would take away from the story.I do highly suggest the book, it will not disappoint.
