WELCOME TO FOO.

In The Gateway to Foo, fourteen-year-old Leven Thumps learns about a secret gateway that bridges two worlds -- the real world and Foo, a place created at the beginning of time that makes it possible for humans to dream and hope, aspire and imagine. But Foo is in chaos, and three transplants from that dreamworld have been sent to retrieve Leven, who alone has the power to save Foo.

The adventure continues in The Whispered Secret. Foo is in chaos, and Leven must overcome several adversaries and survive the Swollen Forest to save his friends and keep hope alive. As fate would have it, bad goes to worse when Leven digs up a buried secret -- one that stalks him, determined to whisper a truth that could be deadly in the wrong hands. Will Leven master control of his power, or will Foo crumble under a dark new enemy?

From the Publisher:

What young readers are saying about this book:

"This book involves the magical place called Foo ... I enjoyed, liked, loved, and recommend this book!" -Brogan Bouwhuis (age 12)

"It was hilarious and serious all at the same time. Mr. Skye, the author , is clever and brilliant. This book on a scale of 1 – 10, 10 being as good as Harry Potter, would get a nine and a half. If there were a sequel I would be reading it as soon as I could. This book is very good!" -Jordan Stirling (age 12)

"I thought it was better than Artemis Fowl. My favorite part was the battle at the end. I can’t wait to read the next book!" -Caleb Freeman (age 13)

From the Author:

A letter from the author of Leven Thumps and the Gateway to Foo

Foo to you.

Sometimes things happen for a reason. Sometimes things happen because fate can wait no longer.

Things would have been perfect if Foo could have remained an unknown, if the gateway had never existed. Mankind could have gone on dreaming and imaging with no thanks or regard for those who are making things possible.

But perfection is imporssible in a wolrd where selfishness and greed are more prevalent than imagination and goodness. And the time is such that neither the Waves of the lime Sea or the shadows of Sabine can remain hidden any longer.

Enter Geth, Clover, and Winter. Three transplants here for only one reason, to retrieve Leven and save Foo.

I don’t know why fate put me in a position to know what I now know. Or why on that gray day so many years ago a bearded man with a lupy face and breath as cold as snow whispered what he did to me. All I know now is that Foo exists and mankind is unaware and yet deeply indebted to a young boy by the mane of Leven Thumps and his band of travelers.

Welcome to the beginning of Foo. Be careful where you step.

Obert Skye
