The Tree With Eyes by Hubert Ben Kemoun


Sam is excited when his world-traveling uncle comes to visit. Uncle Julius brings a box full of rare seeds from the Amazon. He instructs Sam to put them in the refrigerator as they need to be kept cool and out of the light. A few days later Sam's friend Lionel is helping himself to "candy" he found in the kitchen. Suddenly Lionel is becoming a Tree With Eyes! Will Uncle Julius return in time to save him? Is it even possible to save him?
This is a quick and entertaining fantasy adventure for beginning chapter book readers. Also enjoyable are the colorful illustrations throughout. This title is part of a series called "The Adventures of Sam X". As far as I can tell, there is no particular order in which these need to be read.
