Book #3 Description
Do you ever dream of discovering a city made up of tree houses? Or riding on a giant turtle or a bat? Or floating down river on a hand-made boat surrounded by a flotilla of equally fun and wacky floating contraptions? Els the mouse, together with his companions from Tilley Pond, embarks on a wondrous journey into the wilds in search of the fabled Lost City, a city built high among the tree tops of a tupelo swamp. The journey begins with a visit from a miniature raccoon who reveals a secret from the past of Els’s mentor, the mapmaker of Tilley Pond. In episodes filled with excitement and humor, Els discovers new friends that help him in his quest, from what appeared at first to be a gruff and ill-natured bat to an artsy squirrel on a leaf parade to odd pilgrims engaged in a one-of-a-kind boat race down the Micmac River. While dangers abound (hungry hawks, floods, bat-filled caves, a venomous plant known as the Venus Mousetrap), Els’s journey is also filled with the wonder of the marshlands, forests, rivers and the tupelo swamp. Be lost in the world of Tilley Pond, a world filled with music, wonder and friendships. Travel with Els on his quest to find the Lost City!
