If you can’t visit the redwood forest in California any time soon, reading this carefully researched book is the next best thing.  In a mixture of fact and fantasy, a boy riding the subway finds a book about redwoods.  Did you know that redwoods can “make their own rain” or that these trees can live more than 2,000 years and get more than 200 feet tall?  As the boy reads and learns about the “oldest trees in the world,” he finds himself magically transported to a redwood forest.  Read this book and join him as he explores the forest, shoots arrows, and climbs hundreds of feet in the air.  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2011-2012)
