Through the eyes of her main character, ten year old Aster (with a new-found gift to speak with animals), the reader is reminded to “Close your eyes. Quiet your mind. Open your heart” to the surrounding world. Wirtz portrays to the reader a natural world in disarray, teaching a valuable lesson to young readers that our actions, even our day-to-day tasks, have far-reaching consequences to our planet. Wirtz presents this dire circumstance in an engaging adventure that places Aster, alongside her new animal friends, against other members of the animal kingdom set to reap revenge against the humans that marred their landscape. Wirtz creates an ensemble of unforgettable characters that will endear themselves to young and older readers alike, all the while striving to re-establish the human role in safeguarding the natural order.
“Aster Finlay and the Great Elan” is a fascinating story and a powerful follow-up to Wirtz’s debut middle-grade fantasy, “A Game of Truths.” Both have found a permanent home on our kids’ bookshelves.
