t.a. barron tree girlTree Girl — (2001) Ages 9-12. Publisher: Anna doesn’t know how she lost her mother. Or when. For as long as she can remember, she has lived in a lonely cottage by the sea with cranky old Mellwyn the fisherman. But Anna yearns to know more about her past and the mother she can barely recall. If only she could go to the far side of the forest where the High Willow stands — and where Mellwyn found her as a baby, years ago. Trouble is, the forest is haunted by deadly tree ghouls — the same ghouls who probably killed her mother! To solve the mystery of her shadowy past, Anna must face the ghouls themselves… and her own deepest fears.

Instead of building boats or hunting octopus, he sculpts the giant stone figures that he believes, in times of trouble, will rise and walk. Impossible, thinks Pico, until the Great Wave crashes into the island and Pico experiences firsthand the wonder of the stones. In this stunning tale of faith and the humbling power of nature, T. A. Barron and William Low envision life as it might have been on the mysterious Easter Island . . . before the stones became the island’s only inhabitants.
