Tilly's Adventures in Cheyanne Forest is the first book in the Cheyanne Forest Trilogy by Catharina Steel. Tilly is excited to visit Opa, her grandfather, and spend some days in his secluded home in the Cheyanne Forest alongside her cousins, Jess and Zach. However, after the kids arrive at Opa's, they are surprised to discover that the Cheyanne Forest is full of magical creatures and derived its name from a nineteenth-century explorer who had last been seen a hundred years back. Trained by Opa's friends in the art of goblin fighting and potion making, Tilly, Jess, and Zach take it upon themselves to search for Cheyanne in the Deep Forest and retrieve his collection of mysterious books. But doing so brings them into direct confrontation with Cleo, the evil witch, and a host of other creatures.

A fun-filled fantasy adventure for preteens, Tilly's Adventures in Cheyanne Forest is a stellar start to what seems to be an entertaining adventure trilogy for kids. Readers who enjoy Harry Potter or mystery book series like The Famous Five will have a great time reading this book. Author Catharina Steel wastes little time in setting up the characters and the plot, moving the narrative at a brisk pace to keep you hooked throughout the pages. The characters are quirky and vibrant. Their colorful personalities leave a mark on you and make them thoroughly entertaining to read. Tilly, Jess, Zach, and Opa are likable characters you find easy to root for. Recommended to kids who love fantasy adventure stories.

What a gorgeous story by Catharina Steel is “Tilly’s Adventures in Cheyanne Forrest”. It is the first book of a trilogy followed by the second book “Tilly and the hidden Elves”. Even as an adult I enjoyed reading this fascinating children’s story that takes place in Cheyanne forest. It takes me back to my younger years when I read stories about imaginary worlds where extraordinary things can happen, and where you can meet creatures with amazing capabilities. The enjoyments is in escaping from reality and opening our imagination to the fantasies of using a shrinking potion to be able to enjoy the company of the small creatures or a potion to become invisible to threats. These fantasies are woven into a story of teen age children spending their summer holiday in Cheyanne forest with their “great, great, great,……great grandfather, where they get involved in adventures and explore this fantasy world with it’s amazing creatures. I am looking forward to read the third book of this trilogy to find out the conclusion of this wonderful story, and I’m sure that children of all ages (including adults) will enjoy every part of it as much as I did.
