“The thing you would notice most was the rain, how the rain fell and fell and never seemed to stop. The sky was constantly swollen with it, then birthing it, swollen, then birthing again, and the hills, like greedy babies, suckled up all that rain. They shone and glistened green as the backs of frogs on bright green lily pads.
Annalise was ten then, old enough that she’d begun thinking about grown up things, like picking her own clothes out for school, yet young enough, still, to indulge in fanciful imaginings of enchanted trees and talking hills. Her best friends were the clouds that canopied her village and the verdant hills that hosted her most precious and outrageous dreams.”As spunky young Annalise travels from one adventure to another, she learns ancient wisdom traditions and gains deeper and deeper insight into herself and her world. Eventually she must make the most important decision she’s ever faced — whether or not to return to the self she has always known.
Six Weeks to Yehidah was a very childish tale, similar to that of… Wizard of Oz I suppose. Annalise, a ten year old, and her two sheep get transported to a world above the clouds. It’s all very confusing at first, similar to Alice in Wonderland… Can you understand why I wanted to have enjoyed this more than I did?
Annalise’s sheep gain the ability to talk whilst in this new world, and it’s all quite amusing. I found it confusing yet funny… Bob for example made me laugh a lot at the beginning. But although I was laughing and grinning and smiling… Six Weeks just didn’t seem to be right for me…
This middle grade book would be enjoyable to those younger than myself, and those who perhaps have the time to sit down and just read a kind book… For those who are stressing, perhaps this isn’t your cup of tea. Oddly, it is very childish, and therefore might calm anyone who is stressing.
Six Weeks to Yehidah just wasn’t for me.
Despite that, it was very enjoyable, and still gets a good rating…
