Customer Reviews

I recommend this book to anyone who loves fantasy or a good adventure.
Shea Green
I love this series, and I hope that I will one day read this book again, and come back with a new review, saying how much better it is upon the second read.
Pat Shand
The only flaw is the cliffhangers he puts in the book, but it builds up suspense and makes me want to read more.

Having read the first book in this series multiple times--twice by myself, and once out loud to my wife--I was very excited about reading this--and I was not disappointed, either.

The story of Leven Thumps is the story of a young boy who discovers the existence of a mysterious land known as Foo--the place where dreams are literally made--and learns that that land is about be merged with reality (with disastrous consequences) unless he stops it. Leven is aided and instructed in his quest by a young girl named Winter (who can freeze things), a furry little creature named Clover (who can hold entire universes it seems in the pocket of his cloak), and a character named Geth (who is the ruler of the land of Foo but has been imprisoned inside a toothpick).

The first book in the series dealt with these characters journeying to Foo and destroying the gateway between Foo and our world.

The second book, this book, finally deals with Foo itself, and the wait, evidently, has been very worth it.

Unlike the Harry Potter books in which every volume starts off as expected with "Another Year at Hogwarts...," this volume kicks off only hours after the ending of the previous volume, and probably only covers a few days at most, as the characters race across the bizarre world of Foo to get to the Turretts of Foo, so that Geth can be restored to his real form before the toothpick he's trapped in hardens forever and ends his life.

The story is expertly intercut with stories of other characters still back in reality--including Winter's soulless adopted mother, Leven's vengeful legal guardians, a janitor who discovers ANOTHER very different living toothpick, and a concerned trashman in search of his missing neighbor, Winter.

Obert Skye (if that's his real name....) is indeed showing to the world what a talented author he is. He really hits home with the second installment of the Leven Thumps series. Poor Leven never seems to get much of a rest, this book is no exception it starts out fast and furious and keeps going all the way up to the cliff hanging end.

The writing is clean ( parents should have no problems with their kids reading this book) the action is intense and non stop and the characters are fun and full of life. How could you not like a main character that is a tooth pick? This book is very imaginative and very cleaver. I wish it didn't end and I really wish I didn't have to wait another year or two for the next one.

This book is fun to read, so much so that it has laugh out loud moments. Obert Skye has a gift for writing. His story is concise, unpredictable, coherent, and a joy to read. The characters are worth reading about and do a nice job drawing you into their story. Fun for all ages. I highly recommend this book and the series.

Leven is back in an adventure that only an Offing can have. Now in Foo, the land of Dreams, Leven, Winter, Geth, and the irrepressible Sycophant Clover have several purposes to accomplish. Leven has destroyed the gateway and Sabine but now he must contend with Sabine's crafty Rant henchman, Jamoon. (A rant, as we all recall, is a creature whose left half lives in a flux of incoming dreams being invented by humans)... and of course there is Sabine's Rings of Plague roaming around that love to stir up trouble for the residents of Foo. Meanwhile, in reality, a janitor named Dennis has encounter the darker side of Geth, a toothpick named Ezra who intends to use Dennis to get him back to Foo. The major task at hand though is that Geth has to be restored from his toothpick status to that of the crown Prince of Foo, and must be restored before his body permanently hardens and his soul is lost forever.

But fate has something to say about their course of actions...and fate can be a cruel mistress at times.

Immediately Winter and Leven are separated. Leven must contend with all sorts of trials and tribulations to get back with her and in tandem Winter has to fend for her life against Jamoon. Geth must find a way to get to the turrets when he volunteers to leave Winter in an attempt to locate Leven and Clover... and the worst thing comes to pass when Leven unknowingly discovers a key and releases the worst of all secrets that Foo has to hide... something that could irrevocably change the face of Foo as we know it.

"Leven took off running just as the liberated secret pulled itself erect, tilted back its head, and screamed."

"Leven Thumps and the Whispered Secret" continues in the vain of it's predecessor with skill and agility.

Have you ever wondered about what's on the other side of your dreams? Well if you do this is the book for you. This book is about a 14 year old boy named Leven, who is the destined savior of Foo (a magical world were humans dreams are stored.) and with the help of his friends will keep Foo from danger. His friends are geth (the rightful king of Foo who has been turned into a toothpick), clover (a 3 inch tall sycophant who is the guardian of Leven), winter (a girl who has the power to freeze things), and many other characters.

Obert Skye the author did a very good job describing the book. His ability to put pictures into words in phenomenal! I recommend this book to anyone who has taste in fantasy and comedy books. The only flaw is the cliffhangers he puts in the book, but it builds up suspense and makes me want to read more. It may be long (350pg.) but it is excellent and very well written and I can't wait for the next book.

You can find this book in almost any book store and it is allowed for younger children. The best part of this book is how there are many things I've never heard of so it's cool to find out about something new. You can go to [...] and email the author Obert Skye and ask him questions about the book and plus it has information on the upcoming books. This is my favorite book and I hope you like it too.
