« This second volume of the Amazon Rainforest Magic series is a page-turner and as charming and delightful as the author’s first. The story line continues the thread from the previous book and the characters seem like old friends.
Meromi, a Yanomami girl now 9 years old, is a born healer and she wants to become a shaman – and is even more resolved since the adults in her community say that girls cannot …
With the help of improvised allies, she seeks a way to discourage intruders and make them leave the forest. It’s time for Meromi to use her gift for speaking with the animals …
Aspects of traditional Yanomami life in the Rainforest are woven into the fanciful story. The author’s enchanting illustrations transform readers into fellow travelers on Meromi’s magical quest.
A book for young people and others who still know how to dream. »
