Book Description

*** Accelerated Reader Book - AR Quiz No. 163448 EN - 4 Points ***

Ozette, a rare and beautiful white squirrel, must flee Earth World when she is wrongly blamed for the destruction of their sacred forest simply because she is different. Clutching only a golden acorn, which was gifted to her by her beloved grandmother, Ozette escapes to Farlandia, a magical kingdom where her grandmother has said the young squirrel will find her destiny. With innate innocence and sweetness, Ozette quickly forms close friendships with the residents of Farlandia including zany elves, fairies and animals, and soon finds herself tapped to be the caretaker of this old-growth forest. Forging strong alliances through the challenges of life, Ozette and her magical friends will have you laughing and crying as you follow them through adventures that will warm your heart with gentle lessons of kindness, loyalty and self acceptance. And, as a charming goodbye gift at the end of the book to delight all ages, the author sends off her readers with real recipes for many of the fantastical treats that the Farlandia residents enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ozettes Destiny February 28, 2013
By Lou
Format:Paperback
I am so pleased with this book! I hope there are more coming so I can start a treasure chest of them for my grandchildren! This book has so many wonderful morals and manners in it and being taught for a child to understand! It also helps remind the adult that is reading it to the child how important it is to teach these things and follow through by example! The kindness and understanding shown to all walks of life is wonderful! This book is a delight for children and adults alike! Please let there be more of Ozette and her friends to come!

5.0 out of 5 stars A charming book for all ages March 1, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Ozette's Destiny is a charming and well-written chronicle of the lives of a unique white squirrel and her fellow forest dwellers - to include unicorns, elves and fairies. Deep in the heart of an old-growth forest they go about their daily lives confronted by unique, and often surprising, challenges. The author makes the characters and situations "come alive" so the reader feels as though he/she is observing them first-hand. While categorized as a children's book, it will delight readers of all ages with its warmth and humor.

A truly worthwhile read for all ages. My nieces fell in love with the story by page five and it was engrossing enough that I too enjoyed it. Judy has created a truly wonderful world and I hope there will be many more books to follow.

Highly recommended.

More About the Author

Originally from Washington state, Judy lives in the mountains of North Carolina with her husband, Jim, and 3 rescued Bichons with visits from her white squirrel friends. After earning her master's degree from the School of Journalism at Southern Illinois University, Judy moved to the SE and taught mass communication courses at the university level.

Her interest in herbs led her to teach adult education classes and publish articles on the many uses of herbs.

She was instrumental in expanding a conservation education program for the island of Guam and has published numerous articles on the environment.

Judy's writing is influenced by her love of nature and work with Bichon Frise rescue and wildlife rehabilitation. When she's not writing, she loves to garden, bicycle, hike, camp, photograph white squirrels and visit family on the West Coast.

Tales from Farlandia: Ozette's Destiny was written after Judy had been writing short stories for several years for an online group. After much urging, her friends convinced her she should write a book about the lovable white squirrel. Ozette is a composite of the white squirrels in Brevard, NC, and at Ochlockonee River State Park in Florida.

Judy has two children, four grandchildren and three great grandchildren.

She is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.
