Ever wonder about the living beings who drive the wild untamable fires in the west? Here is a tale that makes pictures for us all of the powerful beings driving such natural events forward! These are important pictures to draw us closer to nature in a different way from our ordinary thinking.
The children who helped the elemental world to clean the water and release the water sprites from the Binagatorials in The Invisible Boat, are called upon once more in this tale of suspense and adventure to help our living earth to tame the Molten Fire Dragon. Using their invisible boat, a gift from the beings of the earth and their grandfather, they navigate to the place of most need on the planet — the center of the raging fires in the West. The gnomes of earth show themselves only to those whom they can trust not to dismiss them as imaginary.
Haven't read the first in the series? Have no fear! This plot stands on its own and takes young and old through imaginations beyond imagining. This book will make you wish to read the first, though! This wonder-filled tale helps us all — youngsters in particular — to understand the earth as a living organism in need of all our forces to find balance and cooperation.
The book is for good readers from grade four up to adults and is an excellent read-aloud story for children of seven years and older.
