Read an Excerpt
A noise from overhead stopped Sancho in his tracks. At first he thought it might just be his imagination, but as he took another step a voice called out, “Please don’t leave us!” He scanned the surrounding trees but he couldn’t see a thing. He’d never heard of talking trees, but on such a strange day as this he assumed anything was possible.
Just then Sydney returned. “Come on, Sancho! We haven’t got all day!”
“But, Sydney!” cried Sancho, “I think these trees are talking to me!”
Sydney stared up into the thick blanket of leaves. “Hello,” he called. “Is anyone up there or has my friend lost his marbles?”
To both their amazement, a small boy dropped out of a nearby tree and landed just a few steps from where they stood. “Hello,” said the boy. “My name’s Chip Horn.”
“I see,” said Sydney, “and do you live all alone up there in that tree?”
Chip giggled. “Oh no,” he said, “my mother and father are up there as well. But they’re too scared to climb down. I told them the crocodile was gone, but now they’re not so sure about you.”
