Can a girl grieving her mother, a boy missing his father, and a thousand-year-old wise-cracking parrot save two worlds?
Samantha and her neighbor, Jake, have no idea that Samantha’s best friend, a parrot named Charlie, is a thousand years old. Charlie is also at the center of a secret battle between magical creatures and an ancient, evil man. When Charlie asks Samantha and Jake to protect him, they are chased by monsters from both sides. To save Charlie, and two worlds, Samantha and Jake have twenty-four hours to figure out how to use the supernatural staff, WhipEye, and find the courage to confront what they fear most.
My Thoughts: This story was a lot of fun to read. I found the plot to be interesting and unique. The pace of the book was perfect, I couldn’t put it down. My 11-yr-old daughter is reading it now and is as enamored with it as I was. We are both animal lovers and appreciate that they are a large part of the story; and with magic as an element interwoven into the storyline…? Wow! I don’t want to give anything away, but I will say that readers of any age will like this book, for sure.
