Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

Agnil and the Tree Spirits (Agnil's Worlds Book 3) by Susan Navas is the third book in the series of Agnil. In this magical story, we see Agnil being asked to help the elves whose world is threatened by the Navigator, who is destroying the world by dirtying it and polluting the clean places. Agnil wants to help the elves, but at the same time she is facing problems at home. This book takes the reader on a whimsical fantasy ride while it teaches about real world issues like dwindling forests, pollution and exploitation of minerals.

The book begins with Cranus approaching Agnil for help to save the beautiful elf world. Woven around environmental issues, the author's tale enchants young readers with fantasy and adventure that will capture their attention until the very end. I liked the concept and the message that is conveyed and the fantasy part will pull readers into the story effortlessly. It is a perfect story for read aloud sessions in classrooms and libraries as it deals with a relevant topic. The beautiful illustrations add to the pace, action and drama of the story. The author's writing style is fluid and there is an element of surrealism in her way of describing situations, and the depiction of characters makes the story captivating. The illustrations are also unique and they complement the characters and scenes in the book well.
