Hai cuốn Tobie Lolness này là bộ sách dành cho tuổi thiếu niên rất chi hay ho. Hay hơn, mặc dù không đình đám như Harry Potter hay Hunger Games, là cái chắc.

One of the best book I have ever read, I was genuinely surprised why this did not received higher ratings.
Continue from the cliff hanger at the end of Tobie Alone, Monsieur de Fombelle has outdone himself.
Avoiding spoilers, I'll try to be brief, in Elisha's eyes( the literal translation, I have no idea why the English edition was titled what it is), one can actually see the characters grow, see them become real, no longer some single-layered fictional creation. Seemingly unrelated, various big

The sequel and conclusion to Toby Alone, an "eco-adventure" about tiny beings who live in a giant tree that is being destroyed by the dimwitted but powerful Joe Mitch, is an excellent follow-up that wraps up nicely. There are a lot of parts to this book, which make it hard for me to explain the plot, but essentially it's a story of discovery, journey, and adventure, with a subtle environmental theme running throughout. While it's not a page-turner to me, the world that Timothee de Fombelle creat ...more

When I looked at the cover of this book, I knew that it was fantasy and adventure. Even though the book continues the prequel, I could easily understand what was going on after the beginning. The beginning though was slightly confusing but after reading a few times, I could continue in a breeze. The story has a slightly confusing build-up and in the middle, throughout the same chapter they change the settings really quickly without any notice. Besides all the negative things about it, I enjoyed ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed Toby Alone so naturally I was looking forward to read the sequal especially after the cliffhanger

Toby and the Secrets of the Tree picked up exactly where it left of without bothering to tell you what specifically had happened so it took a while for me to get the plot but once I remembered, things get pretty intense. My advice is, before picking up this book make sure you have read the first book or you'll be lost

The translation feels a little stiff at times but overall it di

This is the second of a pair of books about Toby Lolness, a millimeter and a half tall boy whose whole world is the tree on which he was born. The story follows Toby as the greedy and evil Joe Mitch threatens the tree on which they all live with his damaging environmental practices. Toby's family is also put in jeopardy when Toby's father makes the radical claim that the tree is alive and must be treated with gentle respect and refuses to give up the secrets of his scientific discoveries to furt ...more

Toby's adventures continue and finish in this 2nd book, focused on romance and not on survival. It's not as good as the first, but it's as polished and pleasant to read.

The writing continued to be beautiful and, with the world building, it's one of my favorite things in the series. The world building was still good, with new details about the tree and the evolution of the society. It was interesting to discover how the things changed (badly) while Toby was away, but most of the story was concent

A very slight disappointment, as sequels go, but truly a wonderful read- it took the story to different levels, and since the first book had been such a joy for me it would have been hard for the sequel to match up, but it did... just in ways I didn't anticipate. A bit more gory, a bit more heart-pounding, thrilling and wild, this was a truly great sequel and end to the story of Toby, who is such a wonderful, unique character.

I read the first volume last year and it was an equal pleasure to read the next chapter of this epic journey through such a tiny space that is a whole universe.
Love of nature, respect for every living creature, diversity, open mind, strong women characters, power of family bonds, magic of every marvel that the world has to offer to us, are just an excerpt of all the positive ideas shared by the author.
I really can't wait for my son to be old enough to read it.

It was a nice finale to the story. Nothing gonna say a lot, because it's a sequel. I went into it with no expectations, so I wasn't disappointed.

Timothée de Fombellen "Tobi Lolness" teki melkoisen vaikutuksen, ja olinkin valmis nostamaan sen ilmestymisvuotensa parhaiden lasten- ja nuortenkirjojen joukkoon, ja toisen osan, "Elishan silmien" (Tammi, 2011) bongaaminen kirjakaupassa saikin aikaiseksi pienen riemunkiljahduksen.

En voi kiistää, etteivätkö odotukset olisi olleet korkealla, ja kylläpä ne myös suurimmaksi osaksi täyttyivät. Luonnon ja ympäristön tärkeyttä korostava, vahvasti allegorinen tarina kantoi kohtalaisen hyvin loppuun saak

Toby has made the journey back to the tree and realizes that things have gone from bad to worse in his absence. He has to find a way to rescue both Elisha and the tree itself.
Again, I loved the book. With his first novel, Toby Alone, Fombelle won my respect. With the sequel, he has cemented himself as one of my favorite authors.

"Toby Alone" and its sequel "Toby and the Secrets of the Tree" map out a beautiful and imaginative world. This is probably a "young adult" book, but it is truly ageless. My 50-something friend gave me these books, and my 30-something self was glued to them from page 1.

de Fombelle writes (and is translated) in a way that makes you immediately feel close to the characters. I wanted to embrace one character and punch another. Emotions ran high, indeed. You will cheer for Toby and his family and fr

Libro bellissimo e soprattutto scritto benissimo. Difficilmente ho letto libri per ragazzi scritti così bene, perché l'autore non si limita a narrare in maniera semplice e scorrevole ma ha davvero una marcia in più nel creare una storia fantasiosa ma allo stesso tempo perfettamente credibile e nel permettere al lettore di capire tutti i retroscena dei vari personaggi e non solo per quanto riguarda il presente ma anche per il passato. La maggioranza dei libri per ragazzi si limitano a creare scen ...more

Sequel bị flop so với phần đầu đã quá thành công, âu cũng là chuyện thường ngày ở huyện :D Cuốn này làm mình nhớ tới Harry Potter tập 7, là để khép lại câu chuyện, để thỏa mãn cho tác giả chứ không phải thỏa mãn độc giả.

Chuyến phiêu lưu của Tobie lần này khó khăn hơn rất nhiều, vì thế cũng đòi hỏi cậu có nhiều mưu mẹo hơn. Vì thế nên câu chuyên trở nên rối rắm và khó nắm bắt hơn nhiều so với phần đầu. Nôm na là mình thấy nó khá giống đường lên núi, lắt léo kinh khủng :))

Laba grāmata. Neteikšu, ka izcila, neteikšu, ka slikta. Kaut kā bieži vien ļoti paredzama - katram iepazīstinātajam tēlam tu jūti apakšā ielikto domu, zini, ka, ak, šis ir pieminēts tāpēc, ka vēlāk ar viņu tiks skaidrots tas un tas. Protams, visi tie samezglojumi ir aizraujoši, bet man patiktu nenojaust, ka tādi pastāv, pirms tie ir notikuši.

Šī grāmata bija tāda "meklē pārīti" spēle, kur katram tēlam noteiktā mirklī uzradīsies viņa dzīves lielā mīlestība, un tev jau no sākuma iedoti visi puzzles

Imagine being three millimeters tall, and your world was a tree and some grass below it. This is what life is like in the book 'Toby and the Secrets of the Tree' by Timothée de Fombelle. Toby has to defeat his best friend, and rescue his girl friend! Facing other big and little challenges along the way. That is why 'Toby and the Secrets of the Tree' turns out to be a book that is packed with adventure, and that has suspense lurking around every corner. I'd recommend this book to 5th graders and ...more

Un deuxième tome sympathique, mais tout de même un ton en dessous de son prédécesseur. On retrouve tous les personnages du premier opus. Tout finit bien, tous les personnages principaux trouvent chaussures à leur pied (on le sent venir à des kilomètres) et au final justice est faite, les truands recevant leur juste châtiment.

Le volet écologique est plus que jamais présent, le parallèle est fait entre le régime instauré par Jo Mitch et Léo Blue et les régimes autoritaires et fascistes. On a tout

The book follows around the life of Toby Lolness, who is very small and lives in a tree. And then there are Grass people who live on the ground. There are bad guys who capture the people are taking over, and Toby must/well save.

Tämähän oli melkein parempi kuin ensimmäinen, koska oli helpompi pysyä mukana ja tiesi jo, mitä on tulossa.

Pysyin todella hyvin mukana, tätä on iloa lukea. Sellaista kieltä, että senkun antaa mennä. Nautintoa siis lukeminen. Ei tartte palata ja miettiä, mitä siinä sanottiinkaan.

Ja lopulta kaikki alkaa selvitä. Hyvä niin. Paljon tässä kirjassa ehtikin tapahtua. Onni on se, että toista osaa ei tarvitse/voi vinkata, koska aina täytyy lukea se ensimmäinen osa eka. Koska mitä tästä kertoisi...

Just like the first book this book reveals a whole other part of the world of the tree. Toby going on an adventure to find his childhood friend and save the tree from being destroyed. He must find his parents and save the secret of the tree. This book just like the first is well written, interesting, fast-paced and has an amazing story to it. The characters are developed further and given emotion and depth.

A 'for the whole family' happy ending, as the genre and types of characters called for, if only a bit unnatural because even the antagonists hook up. This 'eco novel' is the best way to gently show children, via the beauty of the natural world, to love and care for their environment. The plot is by no means predictable a la 'disney', I found myself surprised by the extra thought put into it's construction. Definitely a must bedtime story for my unborn progeny.

Pēc „Dzīves uz naža asmens” tikai loģisks solis ir izlasīt arī „Elišas acis” – un jā, arī tā ir tikpat laba bērnu grāmata, ko vērts lasīt jebkurā vecumā. Tajā turpinās pirmajā grāmatā aizsākto tēmu risinājums, nav zudusi kvalitāte ne piedzīvoju spraigumā, ne apakšslāņu dziļumā. Jā, to, ka tā ir bērnu grāmata var just, bet reizēm ir tika labi atgriezties vienkāršā pasaulē, kurā ir skaidrs, kuri ir labi un kuri slikti un kur par visu var piedot, ja patiesi nožēlo...

I love that this is more than Toby's story now, it is the story of everyone he's come in contact with in the first book and it plays out everything that was built up in the first book too. I really enjoyed this little series (can I call it that? it's just two books.) More authors should name their characters after my kids if they turn out as good as this.

Such a nice and entertaining book. The characters are well rounded, and the Tree is even more magical than in the first book. However, I felt the author absolutely wanted to finish everything in this book, in spite of the very numerous sub-plots, and it felt a bit rushed. But very nice, light, happy !

I remembered reading the first one - it was odd but enjoyable, and this one was much the same. The language feels strange until you know it was translated from French - then it makes sense. It has an environmental tone, but lots of adventure and romance, and everything is in miniature like a doll's house.

Tobie Lolness est un énorme coup de coeur comme j'en ai rarement eu! Timothée de Fombelle m'a enchantée avec ses personnages hauts en couleur et attachants, ses jeux de mots fins et délicieux, la poésie de ses mots et de son histoire. C'est le genre de livre qui une fois refermé accompagne toute une vie <3

As a child...
Timothee de Fombelle was born in the heart of Paris in 1973, but often accompanied his architect father on his travels to Africa. Each summer his family left for the countryside (the west of France), where the five brothers and sisters lived like wild horses, making huts in the trees, playing in the river and losing themselves in the woods. In the evening they performed plays for the
