‘HERE WHERE THE SUNBEAMS ARE GREEN’
BY HELEN PHILLIPS
The world knows 12-year-old Mad’s dad as “The Bird Guy,” but to her little sister Roo and her, he’s always just been fun-loving, kind-of-crazy dad; one who signs his letters “I love you with all the bananas in my brain” instead of “with all the love in my heart.”
But when he gets offered the opportunity to study the extremely rare and elusive Lava-Throated Volcano trogon in the Central American jungle, Mad and Roo aren’t surprised when he jumps on a plane and leaves his family behind.
It’s just another research trip…that is, until the arrival of the Very Strange and Incredibly Creepy Letter. Mad knows that her dad is in trouble, and though she’s a self-proclaimed scaredy-cat, with the help of fearless Roo and a band of new friends, Mad is ready to step out of her comfort zone to bring her family back together.
“Here Where the Sunbeams Are Green” is the story of what can happen when two sisters make some unusual friends, trust in each other, and bravely face a jungle of trouble all to bring their family back together.
Ages 10 up.
