WhipEye by Geoffrey C. Saign

Genre: Middle Grade, Fantasy, Adventure
Source:  I received a copy to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed here are my own.

From Goodreads:
Charlie, a thousand-year-old wise-cracking parrot, convinces animal nerd Samantha and her spunky side-kick Jake to save him and two worlds. The two children are hunted by magical Great Ones, and have twenty-four hours to decipher the supernatural staff, WhipEye, and find the courage to stop a traitorous guardian and his enslaved monstrous animals. ... a story about love, nature, wildlife, intuition, and trusting yourself ...

My Thoughts:

If you are looking for something for your middle school child to read this summer then I highly recommend WhipEye.  This book is full of magical adventure.  The author has created characters you love and an antagonist you love to hate.  There is enough adventure to grab that kid who wants lots of action. There is plenty of magic for the fantasy lover, and there is a beautiful alternate world that the kids are drawn into.  Every great magical story has an object that plays an important role.  In the case of WhipEye it is the staff that was given to Samantha.  Will she and her neighbor Jake be able to avoid the evil Magnar and save all of mankind?  I would suggest you read this book and then pass it on to your kids.  I can’t wait to put this on my school shelves.
