Geoffrey Saignabout this book: This thriller novel from St. Paul author Geoffrey Saign portrays twelve-year-old Samantha, who is in love with wildlife, suffering from loss, and trying to find her way again in an unsteady world. Samantha must overcome huge obstacles and challenges, while repairing her relationship with her father and finding her way back to her mother's love. Her guide is a thousand-year-old parrot who imparts his wisdom with wisecracks. Her friend Jake is also missing his absentee father. The two children and parrot have twenty-four hours to save two worlds, by figuring out how to use the supernatural staff,WhipEye, while facing their greatest fears.
WhipEye grew partly out of Saign's love of wildlife, as well as his own search for remaining grounded after struggling with serious health issues. He also co-teaches a self-awareness class for young adults in a local school district. 'It is essential that children learn to trust themselves,their intuition, and to understand that nature can be as thrilling as the video games that occupy too much of their time.'
