Synopsis:

Winner of two National Science Fairs for his work on plant life, thirteen-year-old Grady Jacobs isn't exactly Mr. Popularity. But he doesn't care. He's spending the summer with the famous botanist Dr. Phillip Carter in the Amazon jungle trying to save the rain forest with a new species of super trees. Although his duties are mostly relegated to kitchen patrol, Grady stumbles on a startling discovery: a binary system of sounds that enables him to control the movement of trees.

Even as Grady discovers the tree language, he realizes that Carter's super trees aren't replenishing the Amazon's ecosystem -- they're killing it. When his unauthorized experiments are discovered, Grady flees from Carter's camp and finds refuge with the Urah-wau Indian tribe. but even with the tribe's help and the secret tree language, can Grady stop Carter's super trees?

With his keen eye for popular culture now trained on the environment, award-winning author Rob Thomas tells a coming-of-age story bursting with action and adventure. Hanh on to that vine: It's going to be a wild ride.

From AudioFile: Grady Jacobs wins the name "Green Thumb" from the jungle natives when he joins a rain forest project in Brazil. Narrator Johnny Heller punches up the humorous dialogue with his boyish reading of Grady's spectacular adventures: This kid foils an evil scientist, swings on vines, shoots blowguns, and even commands the trees, proving to be much smarter than any adult in sight. Of course, Grady sounds a lot more like an 18-year-old than a 13-year-old, but that may be because Thomas has written young adult books up to now, as well as working on TV's "Dawson's Creek." Still, whatever his age, Grady is a fun guy to spend time with. M.C. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
