It is sunrise in the Teatown Woods of New Yorks Hudson Highlands. Rebecca, a young explorer, climbs a beech tree to the canopy-the highest layer of plant life-to begin her vigil for the mysterious ovenbird. Ill know an ovenbird, she says to herself. Uncle Luke said its a wizard. A wizard does magic. Thats easy.<P>During her day-long outing, Rebecca discovers that wizardry abounds in this magnificent woodland. She is enchanted by the magic of a flying squirrel, disappearing deer, and wood ducklings. But Rebecca does not know in which layer-the canopy, shrub, or field-the ovenbird lives. And the elusive bird keeps her waiting.<P>Newbery Medalist Jean Craighead George vividly describes the beauty and symbiotic relationships present in the Northeastern Deciduous Forest. Her lyrical prose, enhanced by Gary Allens thoughtful, detailed illustrations, exquisitely captures a young girls spirit of adventure and sensitivity to nature.
