readilearn: Books on Wednesday — Rainforest Rescue by Karen Tyrrell

  • Published on August 29, 2018

Welcome to the first of a new occasional Wednesday bookish feature.

This week, I want to let you know about Rainforest Rescue, newly released and third junior fiction novel in the Song Bird series of empowering books for young people, by Karen Tyrrell.

I have previously interviewed Karen about the other books in her Song Bird series, Song Bird Superhero and The Battle of Bug World so wanted to let you know that the third is now available.

Song Bird Superhero, Tree Man, and Wonder Girl

I was delighted to attend the recent launch of Rainforest Rescue. Song Bird (Karen) and Tree Man (Karen’s husband and co-author, Steve) wowed their audience that included other superheroes as well as mere mortals like me.

Since the launch, Karen and Steve have been busy visiting schools and making bookshop appearances as part of Book Week Celebrations. If you would like a visit from Karen with one of her empowering presentations or pantomimes, you can contact her on her website here, or connect with her on social media — Twitter:  @Karen_Tyrrell. FB: @KarenTyrrellAuthor.

Visit Karen’s website for free teacher resources, a special offer for Australian readers, and information about purchasing Rainforest Rescue elsewhere.

This is my review of Rainforest Rescue, which you can read on Amazon here.

Rainforest Rescue is the third book in the Song Bird series by Karen Tyrrell and the best yet.

Rosella Ava Bird (Rosie aka Song Bird) and her classmates are excited to attend their first school camp at the Gondwana Rainforest Park. Rosie is relieved that her arch-enemy and bully Frank, who has caused so much trouble in the two previous books, won’t be at the camp. He’ll be away somewhere trying to make up for his bad behaviour and collaboration with the evil Destructo.

Unfortunately, they hadn’t even arrived at Gondwana Rainforest Park before things start to turn bad. It’s even worse at the park when they discover that the rainforest is dying, the park is about to close, mythical creatures appear, and kids start disappearing.

Who is there to help remedy this disastrous situation? Can Song Bird Superhero with the aid of her best friend Amy and a new friend from the rainforest, Bunji save the rainforest?

Every nail-biting moment in this story you can’t put down will have you either fearing or cheering for Song Bird and her friends.

For anyone who cares about our planet and the environment, this book shares secrets from the rainforest that will ensure Destructo doesn’t win in his evil plan to destroy the Earth.
