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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
