Toby Alone by Timothée de Fombelle

Toby Alone Looking for a good adventure mixed with eco-friendly fantasy and a hero you’ll love to root for?  Then try Toby Alone by French author Timothée de Fombelle.   Thirteen-year-old Toby—a mere one and a half millimeters tall—is on the run from greedy developers who threaten the Great Oak Tree world that is home to him, his family, and his friends.  He’s clever and he’s resourceful, but he’s the only one who escapes exile to the lower branches.  Can he, all alone, expose the developers’ evil plan and save the Great Oak Tree world?  It’s a exciting story, and you’ll be cheering all the way for Toby as he meets this challenge head on!
