Toby Lolness may be just one and a half millimeters tall, but he’s in big trouble.

His father, a brilliant scientist, has discovered an alarming truth about the great oak Tree that Toby’s people call home: it’s alive. And if they continue digging deeper into the heart of the Tree, their whole civilization could be at risk. In an attempt to silence Professor Lolness, the builders who control things in the Tree take him and his family captive. But Toby manages to escape, taking with him the secret to the Tree’s energy—a secret his pursuers will do anything to get their hands on, even if it means killing an innocent boy.

    " It ends rather abruptly, but I thoroughly enjoyed following Toby on his adventure. A fairy tale for grown-ups, it made for a very fun read "

    " Very different kind of middle reader fantasy. I think that it's a perfect book for my fifth and sixth grade students. I can't wait to read the sequel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 6/15/2010

    " A tale of ecology and saving the environment - all wrapped up in a fantasy world. It jumps around a little bit between the past, present and future, which was a little bumpy. This book should be a YA - it has some very difficult themes in it. I wouldn't suggest it to anyone under the age of 11. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hal | 3/2/2010

    " Pretty good action adventure with a unique setting. Some characters are too stereotypical, esp. the bad guys. And there's no ending, it's just a setup for the sequel, I hate that. "
