The Lovereading4Kids comment
A follow-up to the Award winning Toby Alone, this tells how life in the beautifully imagined world set in the heart of the great oak tree has changed – and for the worse. The power crazed Leo Blue has taken over. Can Toby fight back and put the world to rights again? The small people living in the trees are an engaging and original concept. De Fombelle’s debut Toby Alone won the Marsh Award for Translation.

Toby Alone 2: Toby and the Secrets of the Tree by Timothee de Fombelle, Francois Place
This is the second and final part of the thrilling adventure of heroism and friendship in an unforgettable miniature world. Toby's world is under greater threat than ever before. A giant crater has been dug right into the centre of the Tree, moss and lichen invade the branches, and one tyrant controls it all. Leo Blue, once Toby's best friend, now his worst enemy, is holding Elisha prisoner, hunting the Grass People with merciless force, capturing all who stand in his way, inflicting a life of poverty and fear. But returning after several years among the Grass People, Toby will fight back. And this time he's not alone. A resistance is forming...This eagerly anticipated sequel to the award-winning Toby Alone is a gripping conclusion to a new classic adventure story.
