The Voice of the Tree

Overview

Boys are not reading because the books that are out there don't have anything to do with being a boy. This is the second in a series of books designed to get those boys to read. The idea is simple enough. Give them stories they can identify with as boys and they will read them. Give them enough such stories and they will become readers.

What People Are Saying

Darrell Rocha
Finally! A book I can relate to! It is the first book I have ever read that talked about things that go on in my everyday life. The mystery and suspense were exciting...Eddie is a great character and really kept me reading...an all around great book.
Ethan Selfridge
I loved the book. It was a great mix of mystery and suspense with a dab of science fiction. It hooked me&#33...I picked it up and finished it the same day.

Read an Excerpt

Nobody believed him, but then nobody ever believed him. And maybe, at least sometimes, they were right not to believe him because he had, after all, told more than a few whoppers. Eddie Phelps kicked at a shiny brown horse chestnut lying on the sidewalk and sent it into the trunk of the big tree with a fat smack. All right...He swung his hockey stick down from his shoulder, lined up another chestnut, and began dribbling it across the sidewalk.

Phelps passes to Hondo Johnson, takes a return pass and...SCORE! Yes! Ladies and gentlemen that goal was a work of art, Phelps dropped the pass, blew past his man and slapped Hondo Johnson's return pass into the net without stopping. The goalie never had a chance, but that's the play we've come to expect from Eddie Phelps.

Eddie looked up to see if anyone had heard, but the street was empty both ahead and behind and he smiled and lined up on another horse chestnut. This time it did not go as well. The edge of his Nike caught the seam in the sidewalk just as he stepped into the shot, stopping his leg in full swing and he went spread eagle onto the lawn, driving his chin into the thick carpet of grass. He hopped up quickly and looked around. Someone had laughed. But who? He looked around again, but he couldn't see anyone. And yet he was sure he'd heard someone laugh, a low, deep sort of chuckle. Very deep. Jeez, talk about letting your imagination run away with you...
