Search for the Sunlight by Craig A Thomson is A Treewood Adventure. The treewoods are a part human, part tree race, a peaceful race, but now that the sunlight has gone and the fog has descended, they are gradually getting more and more depressed. The tea crops are failing and the forest is dying so four treewoods decide to set off on a journey to go beyond the borders, beyond the mountains to find the sunlight and bring it home. And the astronomer, another treewood who set off on the same journey 100 years before, has never come back. Be prepared to meet bats and peckwoods, a vegetarian ogre, witches and many more bizarre creatures as the treewoods attempt their perilous journey. Will they find the sunlight and what happened to the astronomer?

Search for the Sunlight: A Treewood Adventure by Craig A Thomson is a unique and sometimes laugh out loud funny tale. The author definitely has a very creative nature to have come up with a tale like this and there are some very clever plays on words, on the names of some very famous celebrities and films – I challenge anyone not to laugh, at least at some of them! The story moves along at a steady pace with some great descriptions and some excellent character development, even if the characters aren’t always quite human. It isn’t a hard book to read and it certainly isn’t for anyone looking for a serious tale. This is a lot of fun, a story that one could easily lose themselves in for a few hours and come out at the other end with a strange sense of having been on an incredible journey, one that you can’t quite be sure wasn’t real!
