    I liked this book it was the first time he had seen Aduro because he had been captured by Sanapo and he was there to encourage him.

    My favourite setting was when Tom and Elena were in the vanished woodland when suddenly the Tree of Being pops up in front of them…

    The award for the best character goes to the tree dweller, he lives in a forest, all alone, he’s got to be brave, maybe he should join Tom and Elena on their quests. Just a thought!

    I rate this book 4/5 because it does not flow as well as other books.
