Tee’s Treasure-True Forest (Vol. 5)
Linda Socha Jaworski, Twinkle Truth
Publications, 2011, $6.99, paperback,
17 pages.
Tee’s latest adventure in the Lap-
landian forests begins when the lights
go out among the dense trees. From
wise Skatt, a mouse, to Jaska, a smart-
talking rock, a fun cast joins child
favorites Tee and Heddie for their “what-the-heck-happens-
next” kind of day as they avoid pesky hunters and fnd lovely
occasions for hugs and songs.
A story of love, magic and friendship, Jaworski’s animal world is
a great read for children and parents. A truly “splenderifc” bond-
ing experience, with its indexed descriptions of a solar eclipse and
the Arctic hare, it’s bound to be an educational one, too!
