What do an old wooden box, a jeweled pendant and some mysterious, green-garbed strangers share in common? When Rolin son of Gannon sets out to solve this riddle, his adventures take him worlds beyond the walls of his little log cabin. With the help of some grumpy griffins and a long-lost prophecy, Rolin and his friends battle a sorcerer and his underworld army; deadly snake-trees; dragons and other mythical creatures. On their perilous quest for the fabled Isle of Luralin, they must trust the King with their very lives. In the end, they learn that "The greatest help oft comes in harm's disguise to those with trusting hearts and open eyes." The King of the Trees will enchant readers of all ages, especially those who love trees and the Tree-Maker.

  The King of the Trees
Tgifmom of Oregon, 4/7/2011
My children (ages 10-16) love this allegorical story. We read a chapter to them as part of devotions each evening and they enjoy picking out the symbolism of and contrast with the gospel message.They look forward to this last part of our day and there is anticipation of the next evening's reading.

The story follows a boy named Rolin as he discovers the answers to some of the mysteries behind his heritage and confronts consequences of his decisions and learns to trust the One who has called him even in the face of the seemingly impossible.

We look forward to working our way through this series.
