Rowanna’s caretaker, Master Melwyn, has warned her again and again not to go near the trees that surround their seaside cottage.  Despite Melwiny’s warnings, Rowanna is drawn to the forest-especially the High Willow on its faraway hill. Are the trees really forest ghouls, as Mellwyn says? Or could they old the secret to Rowanna’s past and the mother she can hardly remember?

The Lion Who Stole My Arm by Nicola Davies

the lion who stole my arm


Recommended for Grades 2-5:  This is a heart-pounding adventure with descriptive details that allow the reader to visualize the setting and action of the story.  It makes for an excellent read aloud.  The Lion Who Stole My Arm, is a story about bravery and life’s difficult decisions.  I was hooked just five pages into the book when Pedru encounters the lion for the first time. Will Pedru join the conservationists in Mozambique who are trying to save the lions ? Or will he seek revenge?
