Publisher Comments:

Clandestine e-mail exchanges, secret trips, fake press releases, and a tree-house standoff are among the clever stunts and pranks the kid heroes pull in this exciting ecological adventure. 

“Sibley Carter is a moron and a world-class jerk,” reads Julian Carter-Li in an angry e-mail message meant for his greedy, high-powered uncle. The fateful message sets him on the course to stop an environmental crime! His uncle's company plans to cut down some of the oldest California redwood trees, and it's up to Julian and a ragtag group of friends to figure out a way to stop them. This thrilling, thoughtful debut novel shows the power of determined individuals, no matter what their age, to stand up to wrongdoing.

Eloise9, February 25, 2014 (view all comments by Eloise9)
Operation Redwood is an amazing book, which combines environmental activism, family dynamics, friendship, trust and humor into a book so good even I (a large fan of fantasy over other genres) had to say was one of my favorite middle grade novels ever. The dialogue and conflict was realistic and humorous, the characters ones you could really feel for. It has just enough about nature to interest but not bore those of us who are very plot and character driven, but still satisfy one's imagination. I loved this book and re-read it at least twice.
