"Tree Girl will surely delight its readers. As in all T.A. Barron books, there is a great deal of wisdom and humor — and an unforgettable hero."— Madeleine L'Engle Newbery Winner, A Wrinkle in Time
“Barron portrays [characters]… with subtlety and originality... [Readers] will respond to underlying themes of self-reliance, rebellion, and the search for self-knowledge.”—Booklist
“Behind Tree Girl is the author's bone deep belief in the holiness of our earth and the children and trees on it. I wish there were a thousand T.A. Barrons out there.”—Rosemary Wells, Author of Mary on Horseback
“Tree Girl is sprightly, magical, and wise. The story is one to enjoy and to ponder, a breath of the forest—a delight.”—Barbara Helen Berger, Author of Grandfather Twilight
“In Tree Girl, T.A. Barron has created a fantasy with the poignancy and the lyricism of the best tales of Hans Christian Andersen.”—Barbara Kiefer, Author of Children's Literature in the Elementary School, 6th and 7th Editions
“Weaves elements of environmentalism, folklore, and personal discovery into a story that is brief but completely engrossing.”—BabyCenter.com
“I read Tree Girl aloud to my entire family (my youngest is a 2nd grader). They were entranced. The only time I heard anything from them was when I paused to take a drink. The cry was, ‘Keep going!’”—BookReview.com
“I found Tree Girl very touching. It speaks to the mystery that every child has within.”—William Howarth, Professor of English Literature, Princeton University
“T. A. Barron is a wonderful find for young readers for this reason: He tells interesting stories without dumbing them down.”—Boulder Daily Camera

Tree Girl is definately one of Barron's masterpieces! The forest setting is purely magical in it's description and I was drawn into it's lush foliage and whispering leaves right alongside Rowanna. But, the most fantastic and breathtaking moment in this book is the ending. It was so brilliant that I just sort of sat there in awe after I had finished it! Very highly recommended!!!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I would give this 6 stars if I could. It is about a girl named Anna who was found by a fisherman but who feels drawn to the forest at nine years old. I would recommend this book to ANYONE! I couldn't put this book down and I have read it so many times! This is really the best book I have ever read! A friend told me to read this book. I thought it was just some old stupid book, but I tried it and I LOVED it even though I had just read a few pages. I finished it sadly. I wish that it was longer. Please read this book Tree Girl--you really will not regret it! I have been telling my friends to read this book! I can't imagine some people don't like it.Was this review helpful?

This book is written in the style of Barron that was loved in his past books. However, the plot leaves something to be desired. The ending to the story is highly predictable. However, it is written fairly well and is tough to put down. I wish Barron would start writing more high fantasy, as with his Merlin series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book, outstanding in ever way, is one for those who the wilderness calls. This fantasy makes the heart sing and the soul soar within the imagination and thought put into this creation by the mind of this great writer. Anyone who longs to hear the grass whisper and the branches sing will instantly fall in love.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

As a small baby, Anna was found by a fisherman in the forest, at the base of a great willow tree. He took her to his small cottage by the sea to raise, and now, nine years old, Anna wonders just what happened to her parents. Mellwyn, the fisherman, insists that the fierce ghouls inhabiting the forest must have killed them. But Anna's curiosity gets the best of her, and one day she wanders into the forest, only to find a world of magic and beauty, not evil and danger. When Mellwyn discovers that she has been to the forest, he forbids her ever to go there again. But Anna feels compelled to return, and especially feels drawn to the willow tree, where she believes she will finally solve the mystery of her origin. I highly reccomend this enchanting fantasy novel.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
